Hickstead Nation’s Cup - Silver USA!
Team USA ended in Silver position after the Nation’s Cup in Hickstead, with 3rd through 5th places all going to American riders, Kathleen Raine, Guenter Seidel, and Shelly Francis, respectively. Tuny Page rounded out our Nation’s Cup Team and I was very proud of them all, especially as they had all had personal bests in the Grand Prix during the week with 3 of them scoring well over 70%! David Blake made his international debut this summer and will prove to be a valuable member of our team in the future. And Katherine Bateson-Chandler and Alcazar will be super Grand Prix competitors in the future as well. It was great watching all our American riders do us proud! Thanks go out to the riders, grooms, Dr. Rick Mitchell and Julie, Jenny Van Wieren-Page, owners, supporters, and the USEF and USET Foundation for making this trip so successful for all concerned!
GO TEAM USA!!!
