You may have noticed — hopefully you noticed! — an additional level of detail in the live stream commentary at Tryon this weekend. Thanks to Amanda Chance, who runs the popular blog Breed.Ride.Event, commentators were supplied with facts sheets for all divisions of the Tryon International Three-Day Event detailing each horse’s bloodlines and breeder. There’s an incredible amount of work and thought that goes into breeding a horse in the hopes of creating a future superstar (I don’t pretend to know the first thing about it, but I can imagine!) so it’s wonderful to hear that work recognized, and it’s great fodder for some really neat discussions which makes the livestream that much more interesting!
