I want to be like Ros Canter when I grow up! This girl is 5 feet and 2 inches of pure awesome. Winning double gold couldn’t have been more deserved. One of my favorite moments from the weekend was watching her blush while her boyfriend took photos of her in the press conference. She’s humble, hardworking and the future of British Eventing if you ask me.

If you happen to live under a rock, Ros Canter took double gold at WEG yesterday. All four team members finished inside the time on cross country, and then sealed the deal over the colored poles. [Ros Canter’s showjumping clear secures fantastic double gold for Britain at WEG]
Take a behind the scenes tour of the WEG show jumping course with Chris Barnard. It caused quite a bit of havoc across the board with only 16 of the 70 competitors jumping double clear. [The Event College at #Tryon2018: Show Jump Course Preview with Chris Barnard]
Bless the muggles in our lives. Muggles, as in non-horse folk. We love them because they put up with our neurotic tendencies and ability to hemorrhage money when any four-legged creature is involved. And then you envy their regular work hours and guaranteed holidays. Some days it’s easy to wonder what if you had a normal job, but then I’m so glad I don’t! [The Muggle Road Not Taken]
