Calgary, Alberta – Overnight rain could not dampen the spirits of the competitors yesterday at Anderson Ranch for the second day of the Rocky Mountain Classic I tournament. Two hunters rings and three jumper rings, including the Grand Prix field, were all in full swing on a day that proved to be a little chillier than is normal for summertime in the Rocky Mountains. International Course Designer Werner Deeg (GER) set a spectacular course in the always impressive Wood Automotive Group Grand Prix field

Hello dear readers! I know I owe you all a Tucker update, but will save that for another post. Suffice it to say I’ve made some big changes lately, one of which has allowed me the freedom to do a lot more writing for Sidelines Magazine . In this month’s issue, I wrote a really fun article about Lucy Matz, daughter of Olympian show jumper and Triple Crown trainer Michael Matz. By the way, have you subscribed to Sidelines yet? No? Well, you should — I love it, and I’m not just saying that because my name is lucky enough to grace its pages these days. Seriously, I keep mine with me all the time so I can read whenever I have a minute, and I end up reading it cover-to-cover every month. If you don’t have a subscription yet though, you are in luck, because you can read my article about Lucy for free here . Check it out! I had so much fun researching and writing this article. Lucy is incredibly sweet and, like her dad, seriously humble about her success and her quasi-celebrity status. As for her pony jumper Wiseguy, well, I think you know how Tucker and I both feel about adorable ponies. He’s a Connemara imported from Ireland, and he is pretty much the cutest guy ever: Now put this pony in the Dixon Oval at Devon (you all know I think it’s the most magical place on earth), making the pony jumpers look just like a mini-grand prix, and I am straight up in love . And Lucy is a great little rider. She is without a doubt one to watch as she moves up to the Junior Jumpers this year.
