EN would like to wish a very happy 41st anniversary to Randy and Sherrie Martin. They are fabulous friendly faces at events all around the world, as well as dedicated owners, supporters and true fans of the sport both in the U.S. and beyond. Their anniversary is also a special day because Caroline’s grandparents shared the same anniversary. Cheers to all the people who make this sport so special. Go Eventing.

Another anniversary? The Kentucky Horse Park is celebrating its 40th this year! Built in 1978, the Kentucky Horse Park was designed as the world’s first park dedicated to man’s relationship with the horse. The park sits on property that has been used to raise Thoroughbreds since the early 1800s. [Kentucky Horse Park celebrates 40 years]

When Lauren Kieffer had the opportunity to purchase a full brother to her first four-star horse, Snooze Alarm, she jumped at the chance. COTH goes behind the stall door with “Bug” to learn the origins of his name, what he was like as a young horse, and more. [Behind The Stall Door With: Vermiculus]

2018 Mongol Derby: And they’re off … well, almost. The start of this year’s 1,000-km race was delayed until Wednesday evening due to apocalypse-looking thunderstorms complete with marble-sized hail and flooding, and an undisclosed “technical difficulty.” With several U.S. riders in the mix, including some American eventers, we’ll be watching the Derby closely!

Attwood Wisdom of the Week: Safety | Performance | Innovation

You could say the road to Great Meadow International 2018 was paved in Attwood footing. Well, maybe paved would not be the right word but you get the gist.   Looking back at that competition, it was truly inspiring to know so many of the competing athletes were prepping on Attwood Surfaces.

From the newly expanded arena at Phillip Dutton’s True Prospect Farm, to multi rings and gallop at Boyd Martin’s Windurra USA to Liz Millikin’s lovely Lion’s Gate Farm to Will Faudree’s spectacular Gavilan Farm. That’s a lot of footing! Because these riders depend on us so much they are much more than clients, they are our family.

We believe that a horse’s health and soundness can be greatly impacted by its daily training surface. That’s why we are constantly testing our footing to find innovative solutions for safety and performance.
