In May of 1943, the first ever Royal Windsor Horse Show was held, beginning an annual tradition still in effect today. Founded by Geoffrey Cross and Count Robert Orssich, the first Royal Windsor Horse Show was part of the “Wings for Victory” effort to raise money to purchase war bombers for use during World War II. The first Royal Windsor Horse show was attended by King George VI as well as Queen Elizabeth
As the weather continues to get warmer, you may be itching to get your horse out on the trails again. But if your horse has been out of work over the winter or if it’s been a while since you’ve been on the trails, you might be in for an interesting ride.
It is a sad but exciting time of year. The school year is officially ending! It has been the best school year yet for the USC Aiken Eventing team.

Well another Rolex has come and gone, but this will certainly be one I will remember fondly for a long time to come. Friday, the second day of dressage, was the only day of the weekend that saw bad weather but that didn’t stop nearly 14,000 people from attending

Ever since 2006, the first year that we covered Rolex, we wanted to stay in an RV at the Kentucky Horse Park Campground.
Lots more emotion today… The testing Derek Di Grazia track was deemed fair, but the four-star offered little mercy to anyone with so much as a momentary blip of inattention or last minute – and very costly – change of game plan. William Fox-Pitt, aboard Bay My Hero, appears poised to win his third Rolex watch after a double-clear cross-country round that moved him into first place. Seacookie added 7.6 time penalties and sits in 16th place on 59.1 ppts.

Wow! Who ever would have thought little old me would find myself the middle of so much Rolex excitement!

And when I’m not in the media center (or walking through the trade fair trying not to even look at anything), I enjoy watching the action from the Kentucky Horse Park Foundation tent. Or I’m attending the competitor’s party, rubbing elbows some of the best riders in the world
