Canadian team coach Clayton Fredericks traveled to Ontario over 4th of July weekend to school World Equestrian Games team members Selena O’Hanlon, with Foxwood High, and Jessica Phoenix, with A Little Romance and alternate Pavarotti, in preparation for the WEG preparatory trials at Great Meadows later this month.
All three horses trained at Foxwood Hill in Schomberg, Ontario, the home base of Foxwood High’s owners, John and Judy Rumble. Jim Elder, a member of Canada’s gold-medal winning show jumping team at the 1968 Mexico City Olympics, watched the sessions, which is especially cool since he schooled Foxwood High as a young horse.
Many thanks to our honorary Canadian correspondent Denya Massey for sending in the photos. Also, be sure to check out the video of Jessica Phoenix’s flat school with A Little Romance, which she posted on her Facebook page:
