Congratulations are in order for Kaylawna Cook and her husband Tyler who are expecting their first child. Their daughter will make her grand entrance this November. I guess this means that Tamie Smith is a “grandma” now, though she certainly doesn’t look it. Congratulations Kaylawna and Tyler!

Our prayers are with Paul Tapner as he recovers from a fall sustained hacking last week. The fall caused him to have two brain bleeds, which led to a small stroke. He’s expected to make a full recovery, but the process will likely take weeks or months. [‘Slow recovery’ expected for former Badminton winner after brain bleeds and a stroke]
Fair Hill’s newest additions were on full display this weekend at the Maryland 5 Star at Fair Hill Test Event. Phillip Dutton ultimately won the CCI3*-S class aboard Fernhill Singapore. This was also a first look at the changes we can expect for the new cross country track, designed by Ian Stark. [Maryland 5 Star at Fair Hill off to a Great Start with Test Event]

What a great weekend at Fair Hill International and the debut of the Five Star Footing. Team coach Erik Duvander said the footing was absolutely perfect. The riders loved the color and even though we didn't actually ask the horses how they felt about it, they seemed to be jumping very well on it. Here's the winner Phillip Dutton Eventing – Training Center and Fernhill Singapore making easy work of the course.
