DoversWorld Heads to Gladstone - The Festival Of Champions - I Hope!
Wednesday, June 17, 2009
"This week begins The Festival Of Champions on Wednesday with the Vet Check and Thursday with the competition. And what am I hope for, most of all? Plain and simple - TO HAVE MY SOCKS KNOCKED RIGHT OFF ME!"
The field in the Grand Prix will be missing our top pair right now, Steffen Peters and Ravel. They will be showing along with Kathrine Haddad inand we wish them both the very best of luck and know they will be awesome. Still, we will have Olympic reserve rider from Hong Kong, Micheal Barizone and Neruda, as well as Leslie Morse and Tip Top who have also represented the U.S. at the World Equestrian Games, and Tuny Page and Wild One, past World Cup competitors.
In all, there should be some wonderful rides also at the Prix St. George level, with hot competition between front runners, Jan Brons and Katherine Bateson Chandler. Tuny Page will have her new mare Alina there as well and there are quite a few others who look quite strong, so it should be a lot of fun to watch.
So I say LET THE GAMES BEGIN! And, to the riders, I wish them all the best of luck and hope they ride every movement for a 10! No holding back.
