Clark and GlenHaving just returned from my stay with Glen in England I am feverishly trying my best to play catch up.

The horses here at home are going super and I am excited to get started on our fall season. Universe, or Buzz, is looking and feeling great. He had a little rest through June and has had some time this summer to work on his flatwork. He is such an outstanding jumper I would like to see him match his efforts in the dressage ring too so it's fun to feel him really progressing.

I have been given the opportunity to ride Garrison Flash for Mr. and Mrs. Nichols this fall season. He is an incredibly athletic 8 year old that was produced by Kylie Lymann. She handed over the reins to me when she set her sights on a stay in Ireland in pursuit of broadening her riding horizons and a boyfriend that I hear is a super great guy.

Jinx, as we call him in the stables, is aiming for a fall two star. Constantine is the grey stallion that can jump the moon but needs a little help in his rideability so he like Buzz has had a summer of lots of flat work.

Glen is back on American soil and will be released from quarantine tomorrow morning. I would be lying to say that I was not disappointed to miss this year's selection to the Olympic Games but I am pleased to have been a part of the selection process. While there, I made it a point to take full advantage of all of the instruction available over the six weeks stay and as a result, Glen is happy and healthy and going better than ever. We have our sights set on the Nations Cup at Boekelo in Holland in mid October and I am looking forward to showcasing all that we have learned.
