Congrats to Mimi Richards and Whitfield, who successfully made the big jump from Training to Prelim at Rocking Horse Spring Horse Trials! The pair finished in sixth place, a big accomplishment.
Whitfield and I are officially a prelim pair!!! He was amazing yesterday for cross country and attacked every jump on course! We ended up in 6th only adding some time penalties to our score! I wasn’t going for time at all and I didn’t even write the optimum time down on my arm. All I wanted to do was bring home a confident and healthy horse and that’s what I did! I’m so thankful to have a horse who absolutely loves his job ❤ Thank you Whitfield for making our first prelim experience a good one! P.S. My go pro is up on my YouTube channel and the link is in my bio if you want to watch!
Mimi rides for the Elevate Event Team sponsored by Kentucky Performance Products, and we’ve featured her helmet cam videos here on EN before. Rewatch their foggy trip around the Ocala Training course here, and here is another from Midsouth Pony Club Horse Trials. Looking out at a course framed between Whitfield’s pricked ears is always fun because it’s so obvious what a blast this OTTB is having!
The 7-year-old Thoroughbred gelding (Private Vow X Seda Fina, by Known Fact) raced five times before beginning his eventing career in 2014 with Jennie Brannigan, and we’ve enjoyed watching his relationship with Mimi develop.
Remember to send your helmet cams to [email protected] so we can share them!
Go OTTBs. Go Elevate Event Team. Go Eventing!
The feeling you get when you watch your child ride.
It’s why we do what we do.
It is why we search high and low for the perfect childproof horse. It is why we give up our Saturday afternoons to cheer them on at a horse show. It is why we spend hours getting stains out of their show clothes. It is why we teach them to hang a fan up on the stall in hot weather. It is why we make sure they learn to keep TWO full buckets of water in the stall. Here at Kentucky Performance Products it is why we developed Summer Games® Electrolyte that will keep the horses in your life hydrated and healthy. It is why the horse that matter to you matters to us. Not sure which horse supplement best meets your horse’s needs? We are here to help. Contact us at 859-873-2974 or visit our website at KPPusa.com.
