Friday News & Notes from FLAIR Nasal Strips

Lucky number 100?? Nyls has arrived at Morven.

Lucky number 100?? Nyls has arrived at Morven.

Nyls and I have arrived at Morven, and we are ready to take on the CIC3*! I’m going to try to bring you some updates from the action this weekend, as many of the pairs here are entered at Fair Hill in a few weeks, and are using this as a last preparatory run. However, I cannot promise much, as reporting on something while simultaneously competing in the same division is….challenging to say the least. My lovely groom will be assigned “camera & electronics” duty, as well as green slime duty, fly spray duty, test reminding duty, and hoof polishing duty. We will prevail!

News From Around The Globe:

Fair Hill International is shaping up to be the biggest it has ever been, with 122 entries in the two star and 58 entries in the three star! As one of the favorite events in the U.S., and certainly the highlight of the fall season, Fair Hill is notorious for its difficulty and its prestige. Winning at Fair Hill means that you really are the best of the best, and most likely you slogged through some incredible mud situation on cross country to come out on top. [Fair Hill Blog]

Looking for an awesome clinic in February in western Canada? On February 7 and 8th of the coming spring, William Fox Pitt will be teaching a clinic at the Chilliwack Heritage Park Indoor Arena, which will be the first time he has taught on Canada’s west coast. The clinic will be limited to thirty people, with riders from Training level to Advanced. Contact Scott Hayes for more information! [William Fox Pitt Clinic Opportunity]

It’s too hot for jackets, but too cold for t-shirts. Its fall: you can’t figure out what to wear and how to wear it without getting too hot or too cold somehow. That’s why I’m completely in love with 3/4 length zip jackets and sweaters. They bridge the gap when you can’t figure out how to clothe yourself in varying weather. SmartPak has this awesome Gersemi Sweater that I’m obsessed with, and you should be too.

If you’re a breeder or sport horse enthusiast looking for an in-house trainer, four-star rider Dan Clasing might be your man. Not only has he developed all of his upper level horses from the ground up, but he’s well known for starting young horses under saddle, and riding thoroughbreds in particular. You can find out more through his website. [Daniel Clasing Eventing]
