The day everyone has been waiting (and waiting!) for is finally here . . . show jumping day! Hurricane Florence threw a wrench in the plans for the eventing schedule at the 2018 FEI World Equestrian Games (WEG) at Tryon International Equestrian Center (TIEC) so show jumping was rescheduled from the traditional Sunday to Monday.

Eighty-three horses started the competition, 72 horses finished cross-country, and 70 horses presented at the final horse inspection with all passing.

With an extra day of rest before show jumping and only one rail separating first through seventh place the WEG Championship title is ripe for the picking.

Felix Vogg and Colero from Switzerland will be the first pair to tackle Alan Wade’s show jumping course at 10:00 a.m. William Coleman and Tight Lines will be the first U.S. representatives on course as the fourth to go. They will be followed by Boyd Martin and Tsetserleg and then Phillip Dutton and Z. Sitting in ninth place currently, Lynn Symansky and Donner will be the final U.S. pair to jump.

Now on Course: Heartbeats and Hoofbeats

My name is Tayah Fuller and I’m 14 years old. “On course” to me is a phrase that makes my heart pump fast and my excitement go wild. There is no better feeling than galloping through a field or flying over cross-country jumps with my heart thrumming along, especially when it is with my best friend. You see, I was born with a congenital heart murmur. While it has never really affected my athletic abilities, the one time that I notice it is when I am riding through a cross-country course with my horse.

Top 10 Tips for Leather Care with Bates Saddles

Tack cleaning is one of those barn chores that might not be our favorite but is certainly necessary for keeping our equipment in top shape. Aside from caring for your tack so it lasts for years to come, regular tack maintenance is important for safety. The last thing you want is the potential for a stitch, zipper, or buckle breaking while you're out on course.
