He is one of only two U.S. riders to win the prestigious Burghley Horse Trials CCI4* (now CCI5*-L) and also won the Kentucky Three-Day Event CCI4* (now CCI5*-L) in 1996 riding Doctor DoLittle.

2020 has been a rollercoaster of the year and unfortunately, it didn’t stop with The Dutta Corp. USEA Young Event Horse 5-year-old Championships as the jumping/gallop portion of the competition had to be halted today after the first 25 horses due to deteriorating footing and challenging weather conditions.
Many of the country’s best eventing athletes are at the Galway Downs International Event in Southern California this week to compete for the USEF CCI3*-L Eventing National Championship. This is the first time this championship has been held on the West Coast, and several horse-and-athlete pairs have made the trip across the country to participate.
