Valmy, Salty, and Banzai, oh my — “an old winner, all over again” gave a great start to what will be a cutthroat British eventing season as Emily King and Valmy Biats took their second consecutive Grantham Cup win at Thoresby’s Spring Carnival of Eventing. Maryland’s reigning heroes Austin O’Connor and Colorado Blue set themselves up nicely in second place, with current World Champions Yasmin Ingham and Banzai du Loir clinching an extremely close third.

Meanwhile, some of our U.S. faves have been conquering some 4*-S of their own on both coasts at Galway and TerraNova, where Tamie Smith and Alyssa Phillips cleaned house this weekend. If the past few months have felt like the longest winter on record for you too, you’ll probably share my enthusiasm in welcoming our world’s biggest players back into the scene!
