Rory is home! Tamie shared on Instagram this week that Fleecework’s Royal has finally made her way home from Kentucky to California. We all watched in horror as Rory had a catastrophic freak injury on cross country at the Land Rover Kentucky Three Day Event this spring, and luckily she was rushed immediately next door to the Hagyard Equine Hospital for emergency surgery, and months of following recovery time. This tough mare had to fight every day to make it this far, and we’re so glad she’s looking happy and healthy.

News From Around the Globe:

As the cutoff date to qualify for Le Lion inches closer, talented young horses and riders in contention for the The Holekamp/Turner YEH Lion d’Angers Grant are gearing up for the final push in hopes of being selected as the grant recipient. With just under two months until the declaration of the 2022 recipient of the grant, the leaderboard has seen a clear front-runner for a majority of the summer, Galwaybay Blake, an ISH gelding owned by Sherrie Martin, Molly Hoff, and Caroline Martin. Though, a new leader has emerged from the pack– another one of Martin’s rides, King’s Especiale, formerly known as Redfield King, now is the highest ranked YEH horse in contention for the grant, as he won the 2020 Championships on an impressive score of 93.52.

I know it’s not eventing, but if you’re not following Pony Finals, you’re missing out on a whole pile of cuteness. In this article, we meet the wisest and cutest ponies of them all. These older, seasoned show ponies have been in the ring for many years, carrying around the next generation of riders, building confidence, and still doing what they do best, even well into their twenties. They are trusted by the whole barn family to carry the young riders in Short Stirrup and itty-bitty jumpers. They are smart, hardy, and kind; the best combination for a children’s mount. With their gentle dispositions and flashy appearances, they continue making a name for themselves, no matter their age. Meet 20 ponies over 20 years old who are qualified to compete at this year’s Pony Finals in Kentucky. [Twenty Over 20]

In 2011 Kristi Wysocki was judging a dressage show, and during a break she wandered over and caught sight of riders competing in the USEF National Para-Dressage Championships. That night she joined the three para judges for dinner and started picking their brains about the sport. Now Wysocki has fallen in love with the sport. She’s the only U.S. Fédération Equestre Internationale five-star para-dressage judge, and she’s about to judge her third major international championship at the Orifarm Healthcare FEI Para-Dressage World Championships.
