I was so happy and excited to be named as an alternate for the WEG. It was such an honor to be included with the other amazing riders and horses, and to have a chance to represent my country. I am also so thankful I was awarded a Land Rover Competition Grant and given the opportunity to go to either Burghley or Blenheim.
I cannot thank all my supporters enough, those who have cheered me on and been there with JR and me through thick and thin. I am so sad and disappointed for him, myself and my whole team, but JR's soundness and well-being are always my first priority.
I want to wish the U.S. Team great luck in Normandy, they are training well, we have a really strong group of horses, riders, owners, supporters and of course, an excellent coach in David O'Connor. I will be there to support and cheer you on! And good luck this weekend at Great Meadows, what a fantastic opportunity to have everyone there at such a great venue.
