The Great Migration in underway, with hordes of trainers and horses making their way back north! They have impeccable timing, because despite getting 12 inches this time last week in Chester County, Pennsylvania, the sun has been out and it’s been almost something approaching warm. Almost.

Well, at least Not Cold.

Your Wednesday News & Notes:

Try to warm up with thoughts of summer and plan ahead to get early bird pricing for Great Meadow! Hurry up, there’s only 3 days to get a big discount on tickets for the GMI CICO3* this summer. Tailgating is still available, also at a discount, but time is ticking. [Early Bird GMI Pricing]

Clydesdales aren’t just for Budweiser anymore. Although not originally purchased as a riding horse, Charlotte the Clydesdale is now aiming to become the first full-bred Clyde to compete in a long format three-day. Her rider and owner, EMT dispatcher Cortney McDaniel has never let Charlotte’s breed deter her from competing at Rebecca Farm. [Meet Charlotte]

Kitty King’s Rio mount Ceylor LAN is back in action. After picking up an injury in the preparation for Badminton last spring, Ceylor LAN spent the rest of the year off. Kitty hopes to have him back up to speed in time for Luhmuhlen. [Ceylor LAN Returns from Injury]
