Wednesday News & Notes from Attwood Equestrian Surfaces

I thought that Pennsylvania was getting spared the brunt of the polar vortex, since our high today is supposed to be 29. But then I realized that by the time I leave work tomorrow it will be in the teens and dropping fast and when I leave for work tomorrow, the temperature will be the balmy temperature of 3. I should feel lucky though, because the Midwest is about to take the brunt, so I’m sending my warmest thoughts over to them!

Your Wednesday News & Notes

Padraig McCarthy recently taught a clinic in Aiken, drawing eventers (and the stray jumper) from all levels. Emphasizing straightness, Padraig put an emphasis on poles and accuracy with both the training and intermediate level. Exercises required a varied number of strides from fence to fence and warmup for cross-country was all downhill…literally. [It Starts With Straightness]

Since a large portion of the country will be stuck at home waiting for the historically low temperatures to pass, it’s a perfect time to dream of that May vacation to Badminton. Luckily the box office for Badminton is open and ready for business for the May 1-5 event.

Sydney International is taking steps to raise the bar, year after year. Under the management of Eventing NSW president Shane Rose, Sydney has committed to running all FEI levels aside 1* through 4*, is expanding the national tracks into the 2000 Olympic course, and is holding the dressage in the Olympic Arena.
