Guess who’s back! Super pony Forrest Nymph was safely delivered back to Sinead Halpin by her owner, Beth Davidson, over the weekend after recovering from some broken ribs sustained from getting cast. We’re thrilled to see that “Farrah” is back in work and can’t wait to see this dynamic duo back out competing. Stay tuned for more Farrah updates!

As the final North American Rio Olympic qualifier, Twin Rivers is definitely an event to watch this spring. In an effort to support the costs of running the event, a silent auction is being held to raise funds. There are some really cool items up for auction, including an egg produced by a breeding with the beautiful mare, Kristi Nunnink’s R-Star! The auction is open now, but time is running out as it closes on March 3. [Twin Rivers Silent Auction]

Area II is now offering what many are dubbing the “Lower Level Triple Crown of Eventing”. The new Carolina Eventing Challenge is offered for Beginner Novice through Preliminary levels, and is being organized by the Carolina Horse Park and the Heart of the Carolinas Three-Day Event. The three-part series is open to juniors, amateurs and pros and is a great way to get competitive at any level. [Carolina Eventing Challenge]
