I know we are all primed to watch Boekelo this weekend because with the ridiculous scoring mechanism the teams are doing, there’s sure to be some drama. We also have a pretty rad all-female team over there with Matt Flynn gallantly serving as a substitute while he competes as an individual….until (hopefully not) needed.

Your Wednesday News & Notes
A special horse helped three different women achieve lifelong dreams. Jenny Brinkley began her re-rider career by buying Guinness as a 3-year old. Eventually, Guinness would take Jenny to her first Prelim, her trainer Mary Bess to her first Advanced and CCI3*, and her daughter Matilda to NAJYRC to win individual and team medals. [Horse Heroes]
Le Lion may have the most world-famous young horse showcase but Osberton’s 7 year old winner have gone onto big things as well. We’ve had a couple of them over to compete in the USA, while other have gone on to compete at 5* and even at Rio. [Previous Osberton Winners]
It can be difficult to change competition goals mid-season but we have all had to do it. After missing out on the USEF Developing Prix St. Georges Championships, Lauren Sprieser switched her goals to make it to the US Dressage Finals with her young Grand Prix horse, Elvis.
