A little heat didn’t stop seventeen participants from coming together at Carolyn Mackintosh’s beautiful Loch Moy Farm for a Future Event Horse (FEH) jump chute clinic last Thursday. Owners, handlers and breeders left with a plethora of information as well as some valuable practice navigating a jump chute in preparation for the FEH Championship this fall. From an adorable Belgian Draft cross to beautiful OTTB's, to a flashy Knabstrupper gelding, all the horses reflected their high quality breeding and showed great potential.
Lexington, Ky. - The United States Equestrian Federation (USEF) has made a substitution to the U.S. Olympic Eventing Team Traveling Reserve. Maya Black has withdrawn Dawn and Jonathan Dofelmier's Doesn't Play Fair due to veterinary concerns. The gelding is expected to make a full recovery and Black looks forward to a return in the 2017 season.
