Good friends of EN Dom and Jimmie Schramm will once again be offering commentary during the online live stream, and we’ll be posting the links prior to the competition. EN is excited to once again be bringing you live coverage of the Wellington Eventing Showcase. We hope to see you there!
Update: Kyle Carter announced on his Facebook page that Cooley Nothing Better B had to be scratched from the competition due to a minor hoof issue, and instead he will ride his 2010 World Equestrian Games partner Madison Park. This will be Parker’s first outing since Poplar Place CIC3* last year, so we’re thrilled to see him back out!
