There’s no rest for the weary as we wrap up Burghley and look on to Blenheim. Team USA has five in the CCI3*: Hannah Sue Burnett and Harbour Pilot, Holly Payne Caravella and Santino, Will Faudree and Pfun, Kurt Martin and DeLux Z, and Tamie Smith and Twizted Syster. Then we also have Kylie Lyman and Lup the Loop in the 8/9-year-old CIC3*, and Tamie Smith with her second ride in Dempsey. We’re lucky to have Samantha Clark on the grounds to bring you all the action right here on EN.

Your Wednesday News & Notes:

Get to know our 2016 Burghley winner, Christopher Burton. For instance, in 2013, he rode TS Jamaimo to a win at the Adelaide CCI4*. The catch? He’d never ridden TS Jamaimo before, and the horse was competing at his first four-star. Talk about #madskills. [All You Need to Know]

A British trainer is organizing a jumper show to help raise funds for the charity and is looking for competitors and sponsors. [Hannah Francis Memorial Event]

SmartPak Product of the Day: Speaking of Shapley’s, I would be absolutely be remiss to not mention how much I love their M-T-G formula. Between the summer storms, humidity and heat, the legs on my chestnut can be prone to fungus and scratches.
