Weekend Instagram Roundup: Smiles for Miles


I’ve got to kick off this week’s edition with a hopefully blush-inducing shout-out to my rider/writer buddy Lisa Slade, whose OTTB mare “Skittles” got her first taste of the cross country rainbow at River Glen H.T. Skittles’ path from the track to the startbox has been a pretty epic journey, literally (by all accounts she put on quite a show between cross country warm-up and the box) and figuratively, but Lisa knew she had something special on her hands and stuck with it. That big, shiny ribbon is well-earned — congrats, ladies!

Here are a few more of your award-winning smiles that lit up the Eventing Nation over the weekend, from River Glen in Tennessee [Results] …
