Andrea Baxter and AP Indy came to Burghley 2018 with a mission. “Last year was almost just a dream to be there and giving it a try, but I put the pressure on myself this year as I knew Indy and I could do it and we needed to go out there and prove it!” And so they did. Andrea recounts her rematch with Britain’s big, bag four-star in this feature for Slo Horse News. [Andrea Baxter’s Burghley Redemption Plan with Indy 500]

Jess Halliday has been a fixture in Area I for the past decade, whether working at Dover or running her own training farm. However, 2018 has not been her year, with one bad thing after another happening. Despite that, Jess never gave up her smile, even through what she thought was a bad stomach bug. When the bug turned out to be Stage IV colon cancer, the area has found a way to support her through their ‘Buck Off Cancer’ fundraiser. [Jess Halliday is Ready to Tell Cancer to Buck Off]
Cozmic One, the son of the legendary Zenyatta, participated in the jumpers at RRP. Under the tutelage of Isabela de Sousa, three time winner of the jumping division at RRP, Coz enjoyed the celebrity life at the Challenge. Between interviews with media outlets like TVG and visits from children (and parents!) who remember his mother, the horse had quite a bit of attention.

Attwood Wisdom of the Week: Green Footing
The colors to root for at the Hunt Club might be pink, but we wanted to tell you about our “green footing.” Green as in the color green, like money, like the fields of Kentucky Horse Park … well you get it.
Years ago a client came to us, looking for a world class footing in “another color.” For their particular project, they wanted a colored footing. Green. So it would blend into the hillside of the community. But make no mistake they wanted it to be a premium blend and not a gimmick.
Thus “Green Pinnacle” came to be, with all the properties of our high performance Pinnacle. The color was rich, fade resistant and did not wash out in the rain. And because we use only originally sourced material, not recycled rubber or carpeting that turns footing black, the green would stay perennially green.
Additional benefits of the green colored footing, is that it toned down the glare of the ring on hot sunny days, which both horses and riders appreciated. Green is not the only color we can produce for our footing. If you have a particular need for a custom color, please let us know.
- Green Pinnacle and TerraNova are readily available.
- Same exceptional properties as our Pinnacle.
- Attractive natural green color.
- Proven helpful in cases of difficult local planning restrictions.
