I take great pleasure in bringing you the very first post of Kentucky, every year since 2015. I get to peruse all of the riders posting their first photos on ground and decide which one gets to lead the action. This week is one of the biggest weeks of the year for the EN team and we’ve got all hands on deck ready to bring you the latest news.

Your Wednesday News & Notes

Let’s meet our cross-country trailblazer, Islandwood Captain Jack. As a horse that Caroline Martin has brought along from the ground up, Islandwood Captain Jack has blossomed, particularly in the jumping phases. A horse who is extremely food-oriented, ‘James’ will insist on being first to his stall for every meal. [Behind the Stall Door]

As we edge into May, the heat starts to rise and good ground can be hard to find. The Brits are notorious for scratching when the ground gets too hard, something we generally don’t have the luxury of doing over here. British -based Kate Honey has some tips on how to take advantage of schooling cross-country riding in an arena. [How to XC School in An Arena]
