A great big cheers to everyone who stopped by EN’s Rolex Tailgate Party!!! Fun was had by all. Endless thanks to our fabulous co-hosts from Antebellum Farm, especially Leah Omeara and Brooke, Susan and Craig “The Tattoo Guy” Waldron, for the amazing setup and first-class hospitality. And, of course, a toast to the party’s generous presenting sponsor Tredstep Ireland!

The grand finale of the day was a Creepy Dance Party hosted by the one and only Meg Kep of Team SHE. And yes, we captured it on video — we’ll post it here in a day or two but, to tide you over, here’s a sneak preview:

All things considered, you might say there was just a whole lot of insanity in the middle.

Once again, many thanks to our amazing hosts and sponsor Tredstep Ireland for making this year’s tailgate the most epic ever! Go Eventing.
