North Salem, NY – May 1, 2013 – The Old Salem Farm Spring Horse Shows are proud to welcome the 2013 Rolex FEI World Cup Final winner, Beezie Madden, back to the United States. Her first competition will be the Old Salem Farm Spring Horse Shows, held on May 7-12 and 14-19, 2013
Okay, we have made it through an outstanding long weekend of Rolex Kentucky Three-day Event, presented Land Rover, and the equestrian triathlon did not disappoint. However, we’re in a bit of a tizz – first of all, Sidelines blogger and freelance photographer Beth Harpham is back in the hospital thanks – or no thanks – to that pesky pinched nerve in her back
Rolex Kentucky offered drama and surprises today, but that’s pretty much to be expected. After day one of dressage, Andrew Nicholson (NZL) and Calico Joe held their lead on 40.8 penalty points.

William Fox-Pitt – Second Rolex Diary Welcoming a new member to the Fox-Pitt family [Congratulations on your new baby! How is she doing?] The big excitement at the end of October last year was definitely the arrival of Chloe Rose into the family! Luckily she waited to appear before I got back from Pau, so her timing was perfect. She’s now six month’s old and it’s like she’s always been here – she gets on really well with her two older brothers, and parents for that matter – we’ve been very lucky, she’s a good girl! Taking a break over the winter months [You had a bit of a winter break between November and January, how did you spend it?] The break I had between November and January was fairly baby focussed! Normally at that time of year we would have a holiday, Alice and I, but this year that wasn’t really going to be possible
By Maria Wynne Sidelines Writer Across the Pond William Speed Lane Fox-Pitt. An appropriate name, and the full version is not often used. He is more commonly known merely as William Fox-Pitt and dominates the world stage in the sport of Three-Day Eventing. Not only does his quite formidable height of 6-feet-6-inches make him stand

Hello, horse sports fans - Rolex was its usual three-ring, four-star greatest equestrian show on earth. We love being there, in spite of & perhaps because of the marathon-intense dawn to midnight work days, and we’re already planning for next year, but in addition to great cheers, there were some serious disappointments. JEERS to the official videographers of Rolex KY It sucked in places, the video coverage of the XC by the official videographers – such as only two fences shown of Sara Kozumplik and Manolo Blahnik – I mean, what’s wrong with these people? I would mention them by name but don’t care to give them any ink! How many riders did they “cheat” of XC footage? They wasted precious time filming riders who had just come off the course, showed at least one derriere view of trim/slim female rider (lovely but this is not a nightclub, it’s cross-country!), no sound but several seconds of rider being interviewed, and lots more footage of horses being sponged off – gee whiz, get your priorities in order. We want to see the jumping, the action – the cross-country heart of eventing!!! Sara Kozumplik has devoted years to Manolo Blahnik - here they are in Manny's four-star debut at the third last fence on the cross-country, the double offset brushes which demand precision and momentum so late in the course. But the official video shows them at two jumps only - WTH??
