Nobody could beat Keri Potter’s time aboard Bitalica in the jump-off for the $80,000 FEI CSI3* Grand Prix on Easter eve in San Juan Capistrano. That’s kind of funny because not being in a hurry with the 12 year old Oldenburg has been the secret to their increasing success together. Owned by Julia Koetting, Bitalica “just kind of fell into my lap,” explains the seasoned Grand Prix rider. “We weren’t looking for each other.”

Intercollegiate Horse Show Association competition is bursting at the seams in the national organization’s Zone 8, especially in the primarily Northern and Southern California Regions 1 and 2. Participation growth is such that Region 2 has a moratorium on new teams and Region 1 is close to needing one as leaders work on expanding capacity to accommodate more schools that want to join the circuit.

America’s Beezie Madden (54) held on to win the Longines FEI World Cup™ Jumping 2018 title in Paris Sunday, April 15, but she didn’t do it the easy way. In a cliffhanger of a second round she faulted for the first time over three tough days of jumping when last to go with the brilliant Breitling LS. And the crowd had to hold their breath until she crossed the line to a roar of approval, separated by just two penalty points from compatriot Devin Ryan (36) in second place.
