Good morning EN! Today’s exciting news is that a brand new horse trailer sales website launched yesterday. HORSEtrailers.net is the brainchild of Nicole Robertson, who realized the need for a better horse trailer sales website after she tried to find a new horse trailer online. The site already has trailers from more than 55 dealers in its catalogue, and Robertson hopes that it will help to shake up the trailer buying experience in a serious way. Check out the site here.

Phillip Dutton will take over the ride on Fernhill Cubalawn, previously competed at the 3* level by Alexandra Green. Tom Tierney and Simon Roosevelt recently purchased the horse for Phillip to ride from Paul Green. Phillip and “Cuba” competed at Stuart Horse Trials last weekend, winning the CIC2*. Phillip told The Chronicle of the Horse that he is excited about the horse as a prospect. “I rode him in the intermediate at Surefire [(Va.), in June] and just took him around quietly to get to know him. But [at Stuart] I tried to push a few of the buttons and go a bit quicker. I couldn’t be more pleased with him. He looks like he might be a nice horse for the future.” [The Chronicle]
Liz Halliday-Sharp had a great weekend at Brightling Park International. She finished second in the CIC2* with Fernhill by Night, third in the BE100 with Cooley Cruise Control, and fifth in the CIC1* on Cooley Ground Control. After a few blips marred Fernhill by Night’s spring season, Liz was pleased with his performance in the jumping phases. She will take him out at the CIC3* level at Camphire International Horse Trials later this month. [Box Score]
