Congratulations Summer and Angie, winners of the Third Annual World Equestrian Brands’ Rolex Top Dog Contest. And congratulation Jesse, Ellen and Alistair!
Ellen’s students sent this message with their entry:
“They say you can’t keep a good dog down. As it turns out, you can’t keep a good rider down either! Here is my trainer, Ellen Doughty, sharing a dance with her soulmate, Jesse, in the Kentucky Club Tent on the Rolex XC course following nuptials at the Head of the Lake. Despite the heartbreak of not being able to compete, and in typical Ellen fashion, she kept her chin up, made the best of the situation, and was all smiles this weekend with her ‘best man’ Jesse at her side — or in this case, in her arms. Go Ellen! Go Jesse! Go eventing!”
Jesse, Ellen and Alistair will live happily ever after. And Summer and Angie will get a front pair and a back pair of Equilibrium Airlite XC Boots.
Thanks so much for capturing all the pups on parade at Rolex and for voting for our winners. A big, slobbery puppy kiss of thanks to World Equestrian Brands and Equilibrium for sponsoring this contest and our coverage of the dogs of eventing (and those other, bigger animals too) all year round.
