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!

Quality Over Quantity: The New USEA Leaderboard Point System

The USEA has launched a new system for tabulating points for the year-end leaderboards which will begin with the 2021 competition season.

Grid Pro Quo with Caroline Martin

There are many reasons why I love using cavaletti throughout the year, but the main one is that they help you practice seeing your stride without taxing your horse’s legs. Not everyone has the option of jumping several horses a week, so it can be hard to find that balance between being able to practice your jumping enough and not over-jumping your horse.
