Monday News and Notes from Success Equestrian

Greetings sports fans! It was a weekend where Ocala residents got to feel smug about their superior weather (but then remembered that they live in Ocala), Olympic tickets were booked, a pony motored around an advanced track, Michael Pollard won a few advanced sections, and Kentucky pretty much locked up the overall #1 NCAA seed thanks to Calipari’s coaching ability bankroll. Well before John gets wound up about telling the truth about his team, let’s have a look at those links.

As many of you have heard, Megan Moore lost her beloved horse, The Grasshopper, on the cross country at Pine Top. Loosing a horse is the worst thing that can happen to us as riders. Megan shares a lovely tribute about Hopper. Be sure to have your kleenex ready. [Hopper
