This is the first time since I’ve been doing Saturday Links posts that I’m competing in one of the events that are listed below! I’m stoked to be getting out to my first recognized event of the season at Valinor Farm down in Plymouth, Mass and I can’t wait to go eventing.

In case you missed it, the big news from yesterday is that the International Olympic Committee confirmed to the FEI that equestrian sports, including eventing, will be remain in the Games for 2024. Both the 2020 and 2024 events will follow the new format which includes teams of three riders and no drop score. Check out the links below for the press release.
