Welcome to the world, sweet Mara Jung, and congratulations to mum Faye, dad Michael, and big brother Leo — now, with a new addition to the global roster of eventing babies, I can’t wait to see what the Olympic roster looks like in 24 years or so. Someone save one of those Rocana babies for this sweet girl!

News & Notes from Around the World

I have so many thoughts percolating in my brain box after last week’s European Championships. Some of them are good — we know now that course designer Pierre le Goupil is very good at championship tracks, for instance — and some are… more reflective. I’ll be bringing some of these to you soon, but in the meantime, it’s always worth reading Andrew Nicholson’s opinions, which are always smart and salient.

Lauren Sprieser’s blogs are reliably excellent. This throwback from 2018, about how Young Riders success doesn’t really have a jot of bearing on whether you’ll be successful as an adult rider, is a particularly good one. I used to really beat myself up for having no Young Rider results to speak of, and I wish this piece had been around then. Check it out.

Five of the FEI Eventing World Top Ten riders are women right now. And not a single person will be taken aback by that fact. That’s worth reflecting on: not only are we in a gender-equal sport, it’s proven to be a totally balanced system of success, too. Read more reflections on this, the thing that arguably makes equestrian sport so special, here.

Can’t stop thinking about Walter; won’t stop thinking about Walter. Let’s throw it back to that Badminton round, shall we?
