Cosby Green is looking for a partner in crime! Fresh off her first five-star-finish at Pau, young American talent Cosby is also across the pond training with literally two of the best riders in the world, none other than Tim and Jonelle Price in Dorset. Any chance to work alongside such an amazing team sounds like a really cool opportunity. Cosby is looking at Badminton and Luhmuhlen next spring, as well as other exciting FEI and local competitions. Honestly, this is one of the few times I wish I was in my 20’s again because I’d be over there in a second.

News From Around the Globe:
Chris Talley was this year’s recipient Holekamp/Turner Grant to travel to the FEI WBFSH Eventing World Breeding Championships in Le Lion. After winning the Young Event Horse East Coast 5-year-old Championships in 2021 and being the highest-placed 5-year-old on both coasts that year, Corwin Sport Horses, LLC’s Hanoverian mare Gina (Gentleman x Ballerina) was a shoe-in to travel to Le Lion, and Chris was lucky enough to also take his own Irish Sport Horse mare Loughtown Cici ZA (CC Captain Clover x Castlelawn Diamond Clover) to compete in this year’s 7-year-old championships. The USEA caught up with Chris to get the low-down after he recovered from his international travel. [Reliving Le Lion]
Wellington residents will pay close attention to a particular vote in the Village Council this week. A year ago, Mark Bellissimo proposed a vision for “Wellington 3.0”, promising to build a new horse center alongside substantial residential developments, and consolidate all equine sports into one venue. However, some of the land sits on Wellington’s Equestrian Preserve, and this would be the first time that the village has ever withdrawn land from the preserve, a move some groups dislike greatly.

Peighton Deitz is 16 years old, a junior in high school preparing for riding in college, and the owner and operator of Grey Horse
Equestrian Belt Co. She started making her own belts when she couldn’t find any she liked well enough at shows to pay the high price for, and it evolved into a successful and growing company. Peighton continues to hand-make all the belts herself from her New Jersey home. She sells them online, through social media, at an increasing number of tack shops and at shows, where she also rides in the 2’6” hunters with her grey horse, Squid—one of two equestrian namesakes of her company name.
