I said it over and over again in my live updates this weekend, but wow! Jonelle Price is an absolute superstar, and I was thrilled to watch her win this weekend, but the madness never stops. I’m going to ride the high of Kentucky/Badminton right into Jersey Fresh week. EN super woman Jenni Autry will be on the ground with all the latest. Keep it locked here!

Tuesday News: 

Popular rider Ben Hobday announced this weekend that Badminton would be Mulrys Error’s last four-star. This Supercob wasn’t bred to do the job, but he has always stepped up to the plate and exceeded all expectations—galloping at the top of the sport with dinner plate sized feet. [Mulrys Error: 7 reasons we all fell in love with the ‘supercob’ with dinner plate feet]

Jonelle Price is a BAMF—those who followed the coverage at Badminton know this. You know what else? She’s a new mother and an all around awesome lady. [Jonelle Price: 9 things you need to know about the 2018 Badminton winner]

Lodging is always a huge concern for a WEG location, and this year is no different. The mountain villages around the Tryon International Equestrian Center are bracing for the impact of thousands of spectators and athletes this fall, all who need a place to stay.
