Sadly, Alex Green announced today that she will be withdrawing Fernhill Cubalawn “Cuba” from Rolex this spring. We recently featured them in our Rolex Rookies series, and this would have been the young horse and rider’s debut at the CCI4* level. We are all disappointed to not be able to watch them get a crack at the course. However, Alex and her horse had a slighly scary fall at The Fork this past weekend, where Cuba slammed on the breaks and slipped badly into 21c, the angled brush and mound complex. Due to this happening, Alex has made the understandable and conscientious decision to withdraw from Rolex. We hope to see them rebound for Rolex 2015!

From Alex’s Facebook Page:

“Unfortunately due to our parting of ways at The Fork, Cuba and I will be sitting Rolex out this year since we will not be able to get a confident run in before Kentucky. Luckily the big man came home sound and happy from our mishap and will still be out and about this spring getting our groove back! Best of luck to all the other riders this year, wishing everyone some safe and great rides!!”
