While competition at the FEI World Equestrian Games (WEG) was delayed for a day between cross-country and show jumping to allow Hurricane Florence to pass through, even the threat of a tropical storm couldn't dampen the spirits of the 83 horse-and-rider combinations who flocked to the Tryon International Equestrian Center in Mill Spring, North Carolina to represent 23 countries in the 2018 Eventing World Championships. The British Eventing Team put in a dominant performance at the WEG, sweeping the team and individual gold medals, while Ireland brought home their first world championship medals since 1995 with team and individual silver.

Grid Pro Quo with Alyssa Peterson

From the time we begin jumping, we are always working on perfecting the canter. Throughout my career I’ve been lucky to train with a variety of top professionals and each had their tried and true method for developing the right canter to jump a clear round. The best instructors have their own methods for helping their students recognize this “perfect” canter.
