Rolex was such a positive experience this year, taking into account that BG had been recovering from an injury last year and had just started jumping again in February. He was a bit tense in the dressage in front of the big audience, but put in a stellar clean XC round, when many horses & riders were over challenged.
He was tired for stadium & had a few resulting rails, but all in all BG's run at Rolex was inspiring!!
After the event, Missy was able to take him over to Hagyard for 3 hyperbaric chamber treatments on Sunday, Monday & Tuesday for an hour each day. Missy said the chamber is like a rocket ship with padded walls and a port hole window for a view of your horse while he's being treated. Their services and therapies are so cutting edge and we're so lucky to have them as a supporter.
What's next? Missy is going to focus on dressage & jumper shows with BG until an appropriate event in the fall, which may be at Plantation Field or Richland Park. There is also the Para team responsibilities, which is such a huge part of the BHF program, and we plan to have another blog update regarding those riders in the near future!
