Wednesday Video from Kentucky Performance Products: Meet Rolex Course Builder Mick Costello

PRO is back with yet another video in the excellent Faces of Eventing series. This time we get to know Mick Costello, who has built the cross-country course at Rolex for the past 16 years. With horses coming by just once every five minutes or so on cross country, Mick began introducing intricate carvings to the course to provide visual interest for the spectators. Starting with a carving of a fox in 2000, Mick gradually began adding additional designs to the course, which is now heavily stamped with his handiwork. “It’s more than a cross-country course, it’s an art form,” Mick said. Go Rolex!
