Thursday News & Notes Presented by Stable View

Dreaming of Ireland right now tbh. Photo by Carrie Meehan.

There are two things that set my I-need-a-new-horse-but-not-really senses tingling: the annual fall thoroughbred sales off the track for the winter, and this week’s Goresbridge Go For Gold Sale in Ireland. One is clearly more in my theoretical budget (aka not much) and another is more like a daydream. Maybe one day, I’ll have a horse that is purpose bred and fancy, but so far, I’ll continue drooling online over the pretty free jumping photos and daydream for another year.

News From Around the Globe:

The last long-format of the season runs this weekend at Tryon. Over 200 entries have flocked to the Tryon International Equestrian Center in Mill Spring, North Carolina for the annual Tryon International Three-Day event which will run CCI*-L, CCI2*-L, CCI3*-L, CCI4*-S, and CCI4*-L divisions over the course of four days November 10-14.

The Area IX Championships took place in Mount Pleasant, Utah at the Event at Skyline in September of this year. The showgrounds were busy with five Championship divisions in addition to their nine horse trial divisions running over the course of the weekend, but competitors were thrilled with the atmosphere and experience at the competition. Five new Area IX Champions were crowned for 2021, and the USEA caught up with each of them to chat about their victories. [Riders Reflect: Area IX Championships]
