Sunday Links from Etalon Equine Genetics

Guys, we do serious journalism here at EN. We professional reporters are never called out via live stream commentators whilst lying in the grass at an event, nor do we ever forget who just won very important internationals, and above all, we never have any difficulty remembering riders names over their horses. We also have never once asked a question during a press conference that had already been answered, or had these so called “blooper” moments we’ve so often heard of during our incredibly professional interviews.

Alas, no, that’s all a lie, and we very frequently tend to lose track of the single brain cell we collectively share as a reporting team (top secret tip from EN HQ: the collective brain cell is held by Chinch; that’s why he is everywhere). In this fashion, we love sharing moments like this one from Team USA’s PanAms competitors that remind everyone how human we all are–from reporters to riders, sometimes we just don’t do words good.

It’s been super cool hearing all the updates from Loch Moy this weekend as our US Eventing Team for the Pan American Games gets together for their last outing before shipping down to Santiago, Chile! Sydney Elliot and QC Diamantaire, Caroline Pamukcu and HSH Blake, Liz Halliday-Sharp and Miks Master C, Sharon White and Claus 63, and traveling alternates Tamie Smith and Kynan have all gathered for one last public training session with Team USA Chef d’Equipe Bobby Costello, artfully followed and reported on this weekend by our own Sally Spickard. You can catch up with their progress here!
