Millbrook, New York experienced both ends of the weather spectrum from powerful thunderstorms all the way to 90 degrees and sunny and everything in between last weekend during the 2018 Millbrook Horse Trials at Coole Park Farm. Affectionately christened #Mudbrook2018 by the 450 competitors in attendance, Millbrook Horse Trials managed to provide a great experience despite the challenges presented by Mother Nature. The organizing team and volunteers at Millbrook went above and beyond to ensure that each rider had the best experience possible, showing that true eventer grit isn't just for the riders! Want to catch up on all the action from Millbrook? Check out the USEA's coverage!
