Dang, it feels good to be listing the weekend action in our daily News & Notes and to be looking up recent footage from the weekend’s horse trials again! Many areas still have several months of winter to endure, but the 2019 USEA competition season is indeed officially underway. May as well live vicariously through those down south, eh?
David Frechette, otherwise known as TheHorsePesterer, was out in full force over the weekend doing his good works at Majestic Oaks Horse Trials in Ocala, Florida. In addition to a multitude of stadium rounds and XC clips, he also caught Cierra Daratony and Rio de Janeiro‘s entire cross country round. Cierra and Rio de Janeiro, a 10-year-old Holsteiner X Thoroughbred, delivered the only double clear cross country round amongst their competitors to clinch the win in the Preliminary Rider division. Watch them fly over the Florida sawgrass!
