The West coast IS indeed the best coast, and I can say that as a sort-of-not-really longtime resident now. This weekend was Ram Tap weekend, held at Fresno County Horse Park and featuring divisions from Intro and Grasshopper all the way up through Advanced.
Many thanks to Sherry Stewart for capturing some moments from Advanced cross country yesterday; Team USA Nations Cup member James Alliston, fresh from a trip to the Netherlands to compete at Boekelo with Nemesis, would go on the take the win with Helen Alliston’s Paper Jam, adding just one second of time on cross country yesterday to his dressage score.

Tommy Greengard gets in some prep for an East coast trip for Tryon International next month, finishing fifth in the pair’s first Advanced with Joshuay MBF.
