Tuesday at NAJYRC

The 2015 North American Junior Young Rider Championships eventing teams are all settled in at the Kentucky Horse Park in readiness for Wednesday afternoon’s First Horse Inspection, not helped by the sweltering weather and frequent heavy thunderstorms which although they have kept the Bluegrass looking incredibly green this summer, are also to thank for some scary flash flooding and incredible lightning displays lately.

The forecast going forward into the weekend is slightly better so let’s all cross our fingers that we’ll have smoother sailing as far as the weather is concerned for our competitors from now on.

Most of the horses and riders we saw today were schooling on the flat with their coaches, hand grazing, and hacking around the park. The First Horse Inspection is in the afternoon tomorrow, and the cross country course will be open for walking (and photos).

Thanks to the three coaches we caught up with today – Sinead Halpin, Momo Laframboise, and Leslie Law, and we’ll be out at the Horse Park all day tomorrow for more NAJYRC action.  GO NAJYRC and GO Eventing!
