The CW Event Team just finished up the two week Country Heir Hunter Jumper Show at the Kentucky Horse Park. The horses were great and the gymnastics I have been working on with Frank Conway were beneficial to me and my horses at the show.
Forli jumped really well. I am extremely pleased with how quiet and focused he has become. I think he has really found his niche in the show jumping. His classic style and flashy look makes him stand out. He is for sale. Call for an appointment to try him. You won’t be disappointed.
Simba did the Medium and High Schooling Jumpers quite successfully at KHP. He has become stronger and is really powering off the ground and around the fences. I am having a great time furthering his education.
Many of you have asked me my opinion of the Point2 Air Vest. I just purchased one for myself and believe in the product. I had one inflated on me and I felt very protected and my neck was stable. I know they are costly but I encourage all of you to look into making this purchase for your own safety. One ride in the ambulance will cost you more than this vest. I have a few recommendations for you if you decide to make this purchase. 1. If you have two jump saddles and plan to use your Point2 Air Vest with both saddles, buy the extra strap that you attach your rip cord to. Switching these out can be difficult and time consuming. 2. Purchase at least one extra canister to have on hand and keep a reserve canister on-hand at all times.
Please visit www.point-two.co.uk/ for ordering information. Also, when ordering please mention my name as they are trying to keep up with the number of professionals’ students that are ordering the vests. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.
The CW Event Team leaves Thursday for Surefire Horse Trials and straight from there we head to O’Connor Camp for a week. We will be returning home the first weekend in July. Continue to check my calendar for updates. Pay attention to the little things that will paint the entire picture. Until next time, keep kicking!
