2010 Radio Show by SUCCEED Episode 46 - The Largest Shipment of Horses in History:

- The Germans had better luck on their home turf with their eventing team. They filled the top three places individually, and not surprisingly took the team prize too.
- Equestrian Sports New Zealand are on top of the Games, or ahead of the Games, or at least ahead of the rest of the World at the moment. They have already announced a squad likely to be coming to Lexington next year.

Triple digit temperatures meant that even air conditioned show rings weren't enough for the top tier reiners competing for the USEF Mahajan Trophy and the Open Reining Championship.
- Our spotlight para-equestrian Susan Treabess, also had a good Independence Day weekend, making like Steffen Peters and Ravel and cleaning up! More...
- Thank you to Henry Bullen of Peden Bloodstock International Horse Shipping Agents for joining us explain the preparations they are making to get ready for the 2010 Games.
- What a great sport Jackie Potts was to join us and tell us what transporting horses is like from the grooms point of view.
