Courtesy of some blood, sweat and hard labour a few years ago by one of the e-venting team, we are lucky enough to have one of the Rolex Area Stewards, Lee Ann Zobbe sending us her behind the scenes impressions of Rolex!
Here’s her first installment from the competition:
It’s a stunner of a morning here at the KHP (Kentucky Horse Park), cool, no wind, and bright sunshine. Lots of things are up for the day, there is a Mim’s talk at 10 at Mick’s barn, James Alliston at 10 in the dressage and some demos in the Walnut Ring, including the celebrity Pony Club games (which should be a hoot).
I watched a couple of really pretty rides yesterday, Andrew Nicholson (NZL), Becky Holder (USA), Shandiss McDonald (Can) and Will Faudree (USA). I missed William’s ride, but it must have been pretty good as he got a decent score even though he had to go first.
I walked through the trade fair but am saving the bulk of my shopping for Burghley this fall. I love Rolex, I’ve come every year since 1980, but the shopping just does not compare.
