Off to the Burghley Horse Trials, and tricking my brain into thinking that it’s no big deal. “It’s not Burghley. It’s ‘Bergley.’ I’ll do Burghley next year” 😉 A course walk with David O’Connor, Phillip Dutton, and Holly Payne. A successful jog. And a late-night ‘flasher.’
Without access to internet, I was unable to upload any vlogs while I was in England competing at Burghley. I have a lot of catching up to do. In this episode, I visit the mysterious rocks of Avebury and make a wish at a wishing tree. Fellow eventer Katherine Coleman tells the story of herContinue reading “Burghley Wishing Tree”
I’ve been in England for a while now, and Johnny is settling in really well. Enjoying my time with fellow eventer Katherine Coleman, her groom Caz, and her dog Buddy. I was recently joined by my husband Timothy and my groom Loreen Kay. We’re having lots of fun at the same time as I focusContinue reading “Bring on Burghley”
Want to see what packing for a competition overseas looks like? After taming the ‘black dragon’ (aka Johnny aka Simply Priceless) at Millbrook, it’s back home where I face a tack explosion and get organized in preparation to leave for the Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials.
This short vlog is from High Acre Farm in The Plains, Virginia where I trained with Johnny last week before Millbrook and in preparation for Burghley in a few weeks. Support for my trip has been amazing! Thank you to all my fans and supporters for giving generously of what you have in order toContinue reading “Preparing for Burghley”

In addition to a GoFundMe campaign, I’ll also me auctioning off the saddle that I used during my very first Rolex! Follow me on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/WallaceEventing) for more information and to place your bid! Ozzie goes on his first fieldContinue reading “Keep Moving Forward”
Hanging out at a waterfall with Maya Black and Caitlin Calder before heading back to Rock Creek Farms. Ozzie gets his first trail ride and first canter under saddle. I convince my husband to do jumping jacks.
Getting back on the literal and figurative horse following my fall at the Nations Cup at Great Meadows last weekend.
A quick pit stop back at the farm and then back to Virginia to train in advance of Great Meadows later this week. I was super excited to see that my new One K helmets had arrived, as well as my new barn shoes! Johnny is doing great! Totally spoiled, and he pulled a shoeContinue reading “How to pack ice boots like a champ”
I missed the vlog last week, but with good reason. It’s been busy and kind of secretive as I was training in Virginia leading up to the big Olympic announcement on June 21. Now that the big announcement has been made, I am happy to share some moments from the past weeks. Enjoy!
