Bye Bye WIHS

By Kitson

With Hurricane Sandy on the way in the nation's capital, riders and pit crews packed early yesterday, starting at 6 a.m. By 4:30 p.m. the 6th Street stalls were down without a horse in sight. around the corner on F Street, the stalls were up and nothing left but manure to be carted away in gigantic blue bins.

One of my favorites, Brianne Goutal and Onira won the $32,000 Open Jumpers on Thursday night. Brianne and Onira have a long partnership full of affection.  She's had the dark bay gelding, a ten year-old Dutch warmblood gelding for eight years.

Here's me on Thursday night Interviewing 18-year old US Olympic rider Reed "ReedyCat" Kessler before she (as catwoman) and Ligist won the Gambler's Choice costume class. Click here to read a great wrap up of Saturday night (including another big win for Reed) by Nancy Jaffer.
