Socks' and Tribute's Fork Report

Socks (owned by Wendy and Fred Luce) secured his first Preliminary win last weekend at the Fork horse trials. Not to be outdone Tribute (owned by Kristen Burgers and Doug) also won, this his 3rd Prelim and his 3rd consecutive win.

Along with the winners, Tali (owned by the Ross' and Doug) finished 3rd in the Intermediate and Gunnar (owned by Nicole Carolan) 2nd in the Training. Hughie (owned by Kristin Michaloski) jumped very well in his 2nd Prelim just outside of the ribbons.

Running Order finished up his last full run before Rolex. For a full detailed report listen to the DPE blog by clicking here. If you haven't yet download instacast, it should be next on your list!

We the rare open training slot opening at the end of the month. If your horse has yet to reach his potential or is still needing that tune up his is a great opportunity. Email or give me a call for details.

We have a quiet week ahead before heading with a trailer and a half full to Fair Hill International horse trials. This will be Leo and Simon's first event for the year. Along with the new comers, all of the Fork horses will be out again. Running Order will be doing a combined test prepping him for Rolex the following week. It is still a bit surreal saying that...but hopefully it too will become normal soon!

My final Rolex blog is posted here on the Rolex website.

We are now finally back in NJ. Aiken was great, but I couldn't be happier to be back home. The horses are out on grass and relaxing in the spring sunshine. Not a whole lot to complain about.
