Remember yesterday I mentioned we had a contingent of US-representatives heading over to the Blenheim Palace Horse Trials this September? Another member of that squad is Megan Kepferle and Anakin!Of course, Meg has already spent plenty of times at big events overseas as the dedicated groom, first to Doug Payne and then to Sinead Halpin before striking out on her own as a rider, but is looking to make her own overseas debut in the saddle by making her bid to head to to Blenheim.

Speaking of bid, Meg is also hosting an online auction to help raise money for travel (there’s a number of vacation packages, horse trials entries, and even VIP packages for a meeting and greet with Bebe Rexha!), a friend has set up a GoFundMe for her, and if you’re local to Bedminster, New Jersey you can head to Burnt Mills Cider and raise a pint for the cause!
