I have an easier week now with no competitions this weekend, which is rare but should be an opportunity to tackle some yard work! I was at Chattahoochee Hills last weekend in Georgia. This is the venue for the American Eventing Championships in September and also the final selection trial before the World Equestrian Games. It is an incredible facility on the Chattahoochee River and only 30 minutes from the Atlanta Airport. It is still very new, but I think will become one of the nicest venues in the country.
I am very excited to have Woodburn back in the barn after his post Rolex break at his owner's(Annie Jones) farm. He will start off with one week of walking and then slowly I will add flatwork and conditioning. Milo (TruLuck) has been with me all along since he didn't do a CCI this year. It is great to be able to spend more time training him without the taxing effect of a big event. Chip (The Foreman) is still at Annie's farm and is doing his walking week there.
Summer is fastly approaching and I know will fly by in the lead up to all the excitement this fall.
