This month, in an all-new edition of Heels Down Magazine:
When Brittany Fraser-Beaulieu or Lindsay Kellock or Denielle Gallagher-Legriffon rides down centerline, the crowd of people who gather at the in-gate are the same.
The same group cheer no matter who pins in the top three of the class. The same group go home together after every show. And they’ll be back ringside the next day to support one another after a good ride or a bad, because that’s what’s been instilled in them by the matriarch of their barn family.
The spirit of eventing, a collaborative, uplifting camaraderie among the world’s best of the best in three-day eventing often gets lost in the headlines of scores and spills and penalties. But it’s a community unlike any other in horses.
A walk around any showground will reveal a world of tiny design touches that add up to an impressive overall image.
There’s no point getting a dressage lesson on your jumper if you don’t know how it’s going to help you in the ring and how you can use it in your jumping courses.
All this and much more in the June issue of Heels Down Magazine.
