Another cross country day at the Rolex Kentucky Three Day Event, another sprouting of new dandelions in the grass at the Kentucky Horse Park. Dreams were fulfilled and dreams were broken. That’s why we play the game. If we all went out and rode them clear every Saturday, there’d be no point in attempting it. Sometimes the failure is the thing that makes you regroup and come back twice as hard the next year. Sometimes it’s the thing that makes you wonder why you didn’t go into accounting like your mother said you should.

But most important, every horse came back to the barn tonight to get ice boots, massages, electrolytes and lots of love from all their connections. Hearts may get broken on Rolex Saturday, but if every horse gets home safe, there is nothing more we can ask of this magnificent sport.
