Steady Eddie Gets Well Deserved Break!

Eddie has gone on his first official holiday here in America. Since arriving here in the States in March, the 'Eagle',as he is known around the barn, has been hard in training becoming an event horse and he has done nothing but impress me so far. He has had three starts, with three impressive performances.

My plan is to keep him at his owners', George and Gretchen Wintersteen's (pictured above, photo courtesy Mike McNally) equine retreat for 3-4 weeks, where he will be living the good life with Gretchen's fox hunters. After that he will be back to work with me and Silva. Our plan is to take him slowly, keep working on his dressage, and maybe aim for a training level horse trial towards the end of the year.

George and Gretchen's other horse, Ringwood Murphy, is also starting to find some form. He was narrowly beat (by .01 of a bloody point) on the weekend at the Maryland Horse Trials. Murph has a few more Trainings coming up mixed up with a bit of hound exercising this summer.
