Kentucky Classique HT 2016 Recap

Nov 01 2016

I apologize, but I am very behind in writing my blog posts.  So much so, that I do not remember all of the details of the next few events.  Oh well, better late than never, right?  Though my posts will be short on words, hopefully you will enjoy the pictures and videos. 

Cullen and I had an extremely busy Fall eventing season which started off with the Kentucky Classique Horse Trial held over Labor Day weekend.  The weather was great and the Kentucky Horse Park venue was beautiful as always.

Dressage: Cullen and I put in a solid dressage test to score a 34.

Cross Country: Cullen and I ran around the cross country course without any issues.  There were lots of challenging questions – trakehner, full coffin, angled brush combination out of water – but Cullen handled everything like a pro.  We have been working on making time on cross country.  I’ve been practicing taking jumps out of stride and saving ground between jumps. A big thanks to Rachel Sowinski for the pictures and my husband Nathan for the videos.

Show Jumping: Cullen and I had a beautiful show jumping round that rode according to plan.  Unfortunately, another horse and rider came in the ring before I finished my round and started trotting straight towards Cullen.  Because of this, Cullen took his focus off the last jump and ended up dropping a rail.  The rail dropped us to finish the event in 5th place.

What’s Next: Cullen and I have 3 more horse trials left to go in 2016!
