It just opened up and started pouring down here at Texas Rose Horse Park, so I thought I would bring you a quick Prelim update from AECs. The course rode fairly tough all day, with a lot of turns and technical questions that caused a lot of rails to come down. Leslie Law was able to hold onto his overnight lead and take home the blue.
Hailing from Colorado, Rochelle Costanza, cheered on by her “Ride to be Fearless” team, moved up from 3rd to take 2nd place with a double clear stadium round. I also had to snap this photo of Rochelle to show off the flashy purple extension she had put into Lionhart’s tail!
Clayton Fredericks and his lovely ride Sorrento had a rail down to take 3rd place. This horse was a treat to watch and has a very elegant way of going.
Much more to come from my last day here in Texas, including an interview with Elisa Wallace and her mustang Rune and photos and video from the Intermediate and Advanced show jumping.
