Wednesday News & Notes

The first Intermediate entry of 2020.

One thing I absolutely love about this time of years is scoping out the entry lists that are popping up for the first events in January; while the first events of the year usually only run up through Prelim, it’s often a good spot to spy out horses who are returning to the scene after some time off. As of now, it looks like the formidable Veronica and fan-favorite Clip Clop will both be running at Majestic Oaks in the Prelim, after taking 2019 off from competition.

Your Wednesday News & Notes

With the holidays fast approaching, I’m sure everyone is spending lots of time decorating, cleaning and organizing their houses to welcome guests, and of course packing up the barns in preparation for the imminent migration south. If you’re like me, you find these activities go by a lot faster when you have something to listen to, so why not turn on a few of the videos made available from the USEA and listen in on some of the best topics at the USEA Convention? Here’s three of my favorite listens from this past weekend:
