Never Outfoxed made a triumphant return to competition after a year off facing medical complications. Holly Payne Caravella shared the details of Fox’s “terrifying” year in a Facebook post after he finished fifth in the Intermediate-A division at Pine Top. An EPM diagnosis and a septic bout of cellulitis hospitalized the cross country machine, but Holly says he never stopped fighting. Please join us in sending well wishes to this pair as they head out on a new season.

Hot on Horse Nation: Essentials for a Properly Packed Ring Bag
I’m delighted to report that I got back into the ring this weekend after 6 months recovering from breaking my back and neck! I got to ride a horse I have admired for years and have been given the opportunity to lease to see if we gel as well as I hope we do. This is the absolutely fabulous little Devil Munchkin and I am so thankful to Sable and her family for working with me and giving me time. It was a generous thing for them to do and something I needed since it’s hard to try a horse when you’ve only just been allowed to start jumping. Before yesterday “Kermit” and I had only jumped once together at home. Today he put in a lovely round in the $5,000 1.25 Classic to bring home a ribbon and a huge amount of gratitude from me 😊My Rubens🦄 stayed at home, but I am pumped to ride him in less than two weeks at the Eventing Prix Invitational. Today was an essential first step practicing under pressure to prepare for that fun class.My heart is full. Thank you to my husband, family, and friends who are family, and finally last but not least, thank you to everyone at Overlook Equestrian who simply make this possible. 💗Animo USA / The Animo Experience.com CWD Alberto Fasciani Fleeceworks McCauley's Equine Formulas Choice of Champions
