2010 Radio Show Episode 43 - Spotlight Jumper, Angel Karolyi and a Look at Canada:
- Don't forget to register to win a $300 supply of SUCCEED Digestive Conditioning Program or a 2010 World Equestrian Games T-Shirt.
- Last weekend was a busy one for anyone trying to get a head start on picking the three day event teams for next year's WEG. The US sent 26 year old Will Coleman from Virginia over to Luhmuhlen in Germany to contest the four star there with Twizzel, after a minor injury in the spring prevented him from running at Rolex, and he did us proud.
- At three star level, Canadian Hawley Bennet won the Bromont CCI in Canada riding Gin n Juice.
- In England at the Bramham three star CCI, Andrew Nicholson rose to the top with a clear show jumping round on the final day, snatching victory from local girl Nicola Wilson.
- All the horses competing at next year's World Games will have their feet well taken care of by the American Farrier's Association, or AFA, and this has now been extended to all the test events as well.
- Collecting Gaits Farm has once again signed on to sponsor the United States Equestrian Federation Dressage Festival of Champions at Gladstone, New Jersey.
- Thank you to Akaash Maharaj, CEO of Equine Canada, for joining us with the Canadian update. We are looking forward to having you back!
