Hello from Rolex! It's been an exciting couple of days! Great weather (up until today, at least) and tough competition. Thought I share a quote from Jimmy Wofford in The Chronicle:
"Murry is one of my personal favorites. He has a wonderful eye on him and a cheerful interest in whatever humans ask him to do. This pair will be well placed after dressage and cross-country. If Bonnie can leave the rails up, you'll probably see them here in this stadium at the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games."

This is from The Chronicle of the Horse, Vol. LXXIII, No. 16, Friday, April 16, 2010- the Rolex Kentucky Preview Issue. No pressure, right?! I'm currently in 12th place among the American riders and 18th overall with several more very good riders to go.

My x-country ride is early tomorrow morning. Wish me luck!!

Hi Everyone,

After checking out the Rolex site, I found out that I am #7 in the lineup. Just seven days till Rolex!

Some think riding on the first day is not helpful, but my attitude is to give it my best and leave it up to the judges to place me fairly within the competition.

In other news, I'm excited to announce that I was just recently signed as a sponsored rider for HAYGAIN Hay Steamers. Please check out their website at

Haygain has asked me to do a course walk for them at Rolex, so if you are there, keep your eyes and ears open for the start time and place. If you are not attending Rolex, please check their site, as well as mine, for other updates.

Merloch is looking well and feeling fresh with this cool weather we have been having.

I am heading up to Fair Hill International tomorrow to coach a few of my students. Wish us luck and a safe weekend for all.

See you at the start box!
