Good morning! I hope everyone’s weekend is off to a great start. I will be sitting here obsessively refreshing the live scores from Galway Downs this weekend to bring you the latest updates. Kristi Nunnink and the stunning R-Star are your overnight leaders in the CIC3* after making quick work of a tough show jumping course yesterday. Kristi is riding with an injured hand this weekend, and we give major props to her as we know riding with any sort of injury is tough. Best of luck to everyone competing around the country this weekend. Remember, we are looking for photos or videos from Galway (and any other event as well!), so if you have something you’d like to share, send it to [email protected], tweet us at @eventingnation, or post it to our Facebook page. Thanks in advance!
