Last year it was the east coast and England who suffered an abundance of event cancellations due to heavy rainfall. Those regions have been much luckier this year with regards to weather, but after a bout of heavy rainfall in northern Texas and more on the way, Willow Draw announced the cancellation of its May 25th event. The organizers are working to issue refunds for paid entries less office fees. [Willow Draw Charity Show Cancelled]

You Wednesday News & Notes:

A five-star veteran and stalwart of Buck Davidson’s barn, Park Trader is an eventing rockstar. Frankly though, he’d really rather be left alone than be fussed over. Get to know “Kobe” who, despite having been successful at the top level of the sport actually kind of hates to work. [Behind The Stall Door With: Park Trader]

Canadian show jumper and 2008 Olympic gold medalist Eric Lamaze recently broke his silence on the health concerns that he has dealt with over the last year and a half and sidelined him from international competition for six month: a brain tumor. Please join us in wishing Eric and his family the very best throughout his recovery. [‘I Didn’t Know How To Tell Them’: Eric Lamaze Speaks Out About His Brain Tumor]

Don’t lie — you’ve dreamed of quitting your day job and moving far, far away to ride horses for a living. Meghan Laffin did just that, quitting her New York City network news job and moving to California to manage a dressage barn. There she encountered Jasper, a feral Mustang who had been the victim of a Mexican rodeo tradition that involves roping and tripping horses, who after gaining his trust, has earned her a USDF Bronze medal and taken her to Third Level. [A Leap Of Faith And The Mustang Who Landed It]
