Man, there is just SO MUCH going on this weekend it’s hard to know where to start! I decided to skip Plantation this year (insert crying emoji) in favor of working extra hard at home and reminding myself how to ride properly (insert eye roll emoji). Also, I got a new horse off the track this past weekend and I’m completely head over heels in love, so I’m pretty much too busy making googly eyes at him to manage to do anything else at the moment. Please send help.

News From Around the Globe:

Get yourself prepared for the CIC3* at Plantation with these Gold Cup Fast Facts. Out of 47 entries in the three-star, a whopping eight riders have more than one horse (Buck = 4, Boyd = 3, Jennie, Phillip, Will, Jessie, Colleen, and Kurt = 2). Mighty Nice is making his first appearance since the Rio Olympics, and the tailgating will be out.of.control. [Plantation Gold Cup Fast Facts]

No, I’m still not over Oliver Townend’s winning cross country ride at Burghley, why do you ask? Horse & Hound got together with Ollie so he could talk us through his incredible ride on four-star first-timer Ballaghmor Class. I love watching the video with accompanying commentary from the always honest Ollie Townend. Check it out. [How Did He Win]
