I’m so excited this weekend to head to the West Coast for the Preliminary Challenge at Woodside. This is such a cool event. Even though the event runs through Advanced, all the attention is on...» Read More!
The ring is flooded. The trails are flooded. The fields are flooded. Even roads are shut down for high water. So basically, we’re all living in water wings....» Read More!
It’s graduation season! Sierra Schurtz (pictured above) graduated from high school this weekend and is headed to my alma mater, The University of Georgia this fall (Go Dawgs!). She and “Zach” were also the big...» Read More!
Shoutout to all the eventing families out there! May you all one day capture a family photo as precious as the one above which Rhonda Sexton shared with us. Rhonda’s daughter Molly Scher competed at the...» Read More!
Welcome to the UK, where just a couple of short weeks has the power to transform the state of eventing social media from “I’m day-drinking because my event has been rained off...» Read More!
The rain on the east coast this week has been insane. So much so that Fair Hill has announced that they’ve cancelled the event this weekend, because it is literally under water. However, don’t despair!...» Read More!

While some of us have pulled out our sunshirts for the summer, others are finally enjoying the first competitions of the year. I know all my friends in New England were probably a bit annoyed at my photos...» Read More!
Happy Mother’s Day! While we all come into this sport in a different way, most of us can credit an awesome horse show mom for our involvement. The ones who cheer for you when you...» Read More!

Two four-stars in two weeks … phew! Kentucky and Badminton on back-to-back weekends is always a crazy time for the EN team, but where would we be without a little insanity in the middle, eh?...» Read More!
