Good morning, Eventing Nation! It’s going to be a gorgeous fall weekend here in St. Louis, and there is plenty of eventing action coming to you from, among others, Morven Park, where a smattering of Pau bound pairs and a whole lot of Beginner Novice through Advanced entries will be vying for the top honors. As mentioned above, Kate and Nyls currently lead their Advanced Championships division, ahead of Doug Payne and Crown Talisman, Allison Springer and Copycat Chloe, and Dana Widstrand and Relentless Pursuit. In the Advanced division, Pau-bound Phillip Dutton packs a one-two punch with Fernhill Fugitive and Mr. Medicott after dressage and show jumping. Kate posted an Advanced cross country course preview, which looks to be quite an undertaking for those who are attempting it today.

This video could likely go onto the Pony Shaming series, but we’ll just go ahead and put this up now!
