The Belgian eventing team haven’t just had the 2023 season of dreams, earning themselves myriad accolades, an Olympic qualification, Nations Cup domination, and much, much more — they’re also cleaning up this winter, winning plenty of awards at galas for their upward trajectory. We’ll be carrying on our vocal support for this exciting team as the year continues, and for now, we’re really enjoying seeing them get all the praise they richly deserve. Congratulations, guys!

And save her she did: now, the mare is enjoying life as a broodmare. Check out her story here.

Curious to know more about Sydney Elliott? Our own Allie sat down with her to find out about the making of this stalwart US team rider in a story that was first published in Sidelines and is now holding court on the US Eventing site. It’s well worth a read.

USEF’s annual meeting had a big focus on one topic: and no points for you if you guessed that it was social license, because that’s the subject we can’t get away from at the moment. But rather than conversation, their focus was on finding solutions. Here’s how they got on.
