USEA Podcast #252: Marching in on the Season

By USEA

In the latest episode of the USEA Official Podcast, Nicole Brown catches up with Frankie Thieriot Stutes whose five-star campaigner Chatwin was back in action at the Fresno County Horse Park Horse Trials. The team talks through the eye-catching performances this spring and look forward to Red Hills International at the weekend.

  • Starr Witness and Doug Payne put in a dazzling performance in the mare's first Advanced level event at the Pine Top Advanced Horse Trials, taking home the win on a score of 25.8.
  • In the other Advanced division at the Pine Top Advanced Horse Trials, Liz Halliday-Sharp and Cooley Quicksilver had an impressive performance, winning on a score of 29.6.
  • At the Rocking Horse Winter II Advanced Horse Trials, Buck Davidson scored the first, second, and fourth slots in the Advanced B division with Carlevo, Erroll Gobey, and Copper Beach, respectively.
  • The Advanced A division at Rocking Horse was topped by Canadian Lisa Marie Fergusson and Honor Me on a score of 36.9.
  • Frankie Thieriot Stutes and Chatwin were out and about at the Fresno County Horse Park Horse Trials last month, stretching their legs at the Preliminary level after a bit of a hiatus at the end of 2019.
  • Before the horses ship over to Red Hills International this coming weekend, many of them will be stopping off at the Ocala Horse Properties Eventing Prix Invitational, the brainchild of Max Corcoran and Scott Keach, on Tuesday, March 3.
  • The winners of the Red Hills International CCI4*-S from the last three years are all returning this year to see if they can reclaim the title, and there are several ones to watch in the Advanced division as well.

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.

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.
