Rocking Horse Stable’s winter event series rolls on with its Winter II H.T. taking place this weekend. The upper-level divisions are done and dusted, with several Novice and Beginner Novice divisions still unfolding this afternoon. See live scores here, and of course we’ll have a full winners report on EN tomorrow.
Mallory Stiver kindly shared this Prelim cross country helmet cam. She and Hugo Boss, her own 9-year-old Thoroughbred gelding (Artax x Goodie Good Girl, by Here We Come), finished second in the Preliminary Rider B division, having added just six cross country time faults to their dressage score of 33.3.
We love Mallory’s positive commentary: Lots of “good boy” and “woo-hoo!,” a couple enthusiastic shouts of “I love you!” and “thank you!,” and plenty of air smooches. Her horse’s pricked ears indicate that he’s having as much fun as she is.
Mallory and Hugo had a super 2018, with top finishes to include a 7th in the Texas Rose CCI1* and a 6th at the American Eventing Championships, and we wish them all the best this season.
