The people have spoken, and declared Foxwood High the ultimate winner of EN’s 2019 Event Horse March Madness Championships! Can’t say we didn’t see it coming — this world-class five-star horse has won the hearts around the world and is an EN favorite (you guys already voted him 2017 EN Horse of the Year, and he’s just gotten better and better since then!)

Here’s the final bracket:

We’re all looking forward to cheering Selena O’Hanlon and Woody on at Badminton 2019, their second time tackling the legendary event. The pair is already settled in overseas at Mark Todd’s yard, where they’ll be able to focus on final preparations for the next few weeks. You can keep up with Team O’Hanlon via Selena’s blog on Horse Canada.

If you would like to show your support for this world-class pair, be sure to check out this silent auction with all proceeds going to support Selena and Woody on their 2019 Badminton journey! The auction runs from April 1-15, closing at 8 p.m. on the 15th, so make sure to get your bids in before (all bids time-stamped 7:59 p.m. or earlier on April 15 are valid; all bids time-stamped 8 p.m. or later have missed the cut-off). There’s lots of great stuff up for grabs, and if you would like to donate an item to the auction it’s not too late! Check out the auction page here for more information. 

In lieu of the Selena and Woody “One Shining Moment” montage we ran out of time to put together, here’s are video replays of a couple of their memorable winning performances!

Go Selena and Woody. Go Eventing!
