It's been the very rare occasion to go eventing in beautiful weather the last few months, but Waredaca HT in Maryland turned out an especially beautiful event with perfect conditions. At the moment I've got the best group of young up-and-coming horses that I've ever had; all of them progressing well in their training and showing plenty of potential for the future. This weekend, all of the horses jumped well, many of them finishing with strong results.

Beginner Novice Horse
Waranga W, owned by Amy Lindgren and Boyd Martin, 1st
A special mention must go to the beginner novice horse champion, Waranga. This is a horse I bred in Australia and co-own with long term supporter Amy Lindgren. Waranga looks to be a very exciting horse with his first start and it was great to see Amy in the winner's circle again after having a challenging year with her French horse, Minotaure du Passoir, who has had colic surgery due to the Memorial Day barn fire.
Lastly, I want to give the whole Team USA a big thumbs up for ripping it up at the Pan-Am Games in Mexico! It was an awesome performance by every single member of the team!
