"If you don't have anything nice to say don't say anything at all." We've all heard the quote, but how many of us forget to take our own advice when we speak to ourselves?
Riding is a sport of distances, from 12' strides to 3' fences and 550 meters per minute. While these distances certainly play an important role in riding, so does the 7" between your ears. Since this is where confidence, optimism and willpower is born, it just might be the most important distance of all.

It may have been Father’s Day today, but it was the girls who finished on top at the inaugural Great Meadow International. In the CIC3*, Jennie Brannigan completed her wire-to-wire win with Nina Gardner’s Cambalda, a 13-year-old Irish Sport Horse gelding – adding just eight time penalties to finish in first.
It was a seriously good decision that the Land Rover Great Meadow International organizers moved up the schedule to outrun the scheduled thunderstorms and both the CIC3* and Pan American Preparatory Trial were completed in just a little over the hour. Shortly after the final horse jumped the skies opened up to intense storms and tornado warnings.
In the CIC3* Cambalda’s barn name, Ping, was quite fitting tonight as he tackled the Richard Jeffery show jumping course with ease – leaving all the rails in the cups and maintaining her spot at the top of the leaderboard.
The first day of the first ever Land Rover Great Meadow CIC3* is now in the history books and Jennie Brannigan and Nina Gardner’s Cambalda lead the division after the dressage phase. The 13-year-old Irish Sport Horse gelding (Balda Beau x Cathys Lady) had his best ever dressage test to score a 39.8 – the only sub-40 mark.
When USEA CEO Jo Whitehouse, who recently announced that she is retiring at the end of the year, was told by President Diane Pitts that she and former president Kevin Baumgardner would be in town on Thursday, June 18th, and planned to stop by the USEA office to “discuss the AEC” little did she know what was really afoot. The notion of conducting USEA business was just a ruse and instead Pitts and Baumgardner came bearing some electrifying news: Whitehouse has been elected to the USEA Hall of Fame and will be inducted into that august body at the USEA Annual Meeting in December.

I met my now 6-year-old mare as a 3-year-old filly. I wasn't aware of her rough start in life, but I knew she was special.
