My my my, it has been an interesting weekend at Fair Hill, has it not? From illegal holding box procedures to a cross-country phase riddled with stops, holds and a run-away flag – it’s been more intense than the finale of a great TV series! Jan Byyny and Inmidair sit at the top of your CCI3* leaderboard going in to Stadium today.
A new-to-horses parent asked me yesterday if the show-season slows down as winter inches closer and closer. I couldn’t help but smile at the absurdity of the question. I shook my head and told her no, that there were still a few competitions left and that this weekend in particular happened to be quite busy with competitions all over the place. She screwed up her face and said “Weren’t there a bunch of shows last weekend and the weekend before? Don’t you guys ever sleep?” To which I responded, “That’s what the 10 minute box is for.”
