Fitch’s Corner Horse Trials This Weekend

The cross-country course is ready for action! Thanks to Eric Bull for sharing this photo!
 This weekend the Fitch’s Corner Horse Trials will take place in the beautiful setting of Fernanda Kellogg and Kirk Henckel’s beautiful property in Millbrook, NY. Without a question this is the premiere lower-level event in the country.  I like to think of it as the Rolex of novice-preliminary levels! The courses are designed by Derek diGrazia and built by Eric Bull, and the show jumping and dressage arenas are world-class, with show jumps that were used at the Atlanta Olympics. On top of this the event has a fantastic schedule filled with with luncheons, a fabulous trade fair and a vintage car show come Sunday.

I’m riding six horses this weekend: three in the prelim and three in the novice. Apparently Millbrook has had a good amount of rain, so the conditions should be perfect.
