Good Morning from CHC International

We are on location at Carl Bouckaert’s stunning Chattahoochee Hills venue, the sun is shining and there all sorts of beautiful horses warming up and getting ready to strut their stuff in three FEI divisions (CIC one, two and three star) and multiple national divisions.

Everyone has settled in for a very long day today (Friday) as dressage is about to start – 8am, and the last horse will show-jump tonight at 10:38pm, yes 10:38pm under the lights.  First horse goes out on cross country at 9am Saturday, and that phase will continue, perhaps overnight into Sunday (only joking, but it does seem like a mammoth task!)

I’m looking forward to watching Allison Springer in the CIC*** on Copycat Chloe, but really enjoyed standing next to her as she coached her two CIC** students in the dressage warm-up, I think I would love to take flat lessons with her.

Clayton was also busy coaching from the back of a horse

Buck Davidson and Shear Mizou did their dressage Thursday afternoon, one of three rides in the CIC** for Buck before he jets off to ride at Saumur next weekend.

Caroline Martin and Petite Flower, also in the CIC**. Victoria New and Fleeceworks Mystere Du Val currently lead this division overnight.  [Live Scores]  Much more to come later, much later! Go Chatt Hills and Go Eventing!
