By Jan Westmark-Allan Rolex – day two! Day two of the Kentucky Rolex Three-Day Event meant the second day of dressage and at this writing William Fox-Pitt is in the lead with Chilli Morning (although another dressage rider could have taken the lead by now).

By Jan Westmark-Allan The courtyard at The Brazilian Court Hotel in Palm Beach. I feel very fortunate to have “hotel hopped” while in Palm Beach – and at my last hotel I was treated like royalty!! The Brazilian Court Hotel & Beach Club Palm Beach – another partner with WEF and another partnership I truly enjoyed — had a few tricks up their sleeve and they all included the royal treatment.
