The Fork Horse Trials produced another fantastic event in Norwood, NC. I took most of my upper-level horses down there to participate. The cross-country course was a good confidence-builder for the three-day events looming in the not too distant future. In the three-star Crackerjack and Master Frisky put in stellar performances. Crackers got a little excited in the dressage but jumped really well and Mikey put in a workmanlike performance; both horses look in good shape for Rolex Kentucky. In the advanced Pancho Villa was very impressive, finishing second around a testing course. In the Intermediate Steady Eddie won his division and the two-star horses, Welcome Shadow SBF Cortez, put in great performances too.
