And just like that *snaps fingers* the August eventing calendar is looking a lot lighter with the loss of Millbrook and postponement of Bromont both announced within the past two days. I’m bummed, but it’s clearly the best, most cautious decision given the recent spike in COVID-19 cases in certain areas. I made my first trip to Millbrook last year to cover it for EN and was really looking forward to a return trip to the beautiful Amenia, New York countryside but I’ll admit I am a little relieved I don’t have to figure out how to interview riders without holding my phone to their faces so they can talk into the voice memo app. I’ve been thinking old school pen and a notebook might be my best bet, but at least I have a little more time to figure it out now.
