Eliza, Abigail and Annelise take Bucky, Leroy, Rory, Wex and Kodi for an afternoon walk. They are ready for the big weekend!
We have just arrived this morning to the beautiful Carolina Horse Parkin Raeford, North Carolina for Southern Pines Horse Trials. I have spent the past week with Annelise Aurillo, Abigail Wilson, and Eliza Crosby training in Aiken with me to get ready for this exciting
We competed at Pine Top Farm last weekend and worked out all the kinks to get ready for Southern Pines. Eliza and Annelise will be competing in the Junior Training division this weekend, while Abigail will be running in the Young Riders Preliminary. These girls have
been working very hard all season to get ready for this big event, and they are looking ready to go! We examined the courses today and they are ready with a game plan for the competition tomorrow.
I am excited to embark on another trial at the Advanced level this weekend with Bucky. We have been working hard on the dressage and show jumping, and he is feeling great. I walked around the cross country this afternoon and the course looks like a challenge for us!
I am also riding Andi Lawrence's Kodiak's Moment in the Training division. The courses and competition look tough, but we are ready to go!
Please stay tuned for updates throughout the weekend, and enjoy the virtual Advanced course walk below!
