Winter 2010 Newsletter Released

While I do try my best to be in contact with each and every sponsor and supporter as much as possible it can be challenging to reach everyone with every update as I would like. To keep you in the loop and aware of the successes, challenges, new arrivals, future plans and schedules of the entire Karl Slezak Eventing Team I have decided to create a newsletter. This news update will be sent out every other month.  In this issue we have updates from the first few events, a schedule for the rest of the season, some introductions as well as the details of a release date for the new and improved karlslezakeventing.com. I hope you are all enjoying the beginnings of spring. Things are finally starting to warm up here in Ocala just in time for the big events of the season.  I welcome you to join me at any of these competitions and point specific focus to Rolex from April 21-25th in Lexington, Kentucky. Hope to see you there!!

Rocketing up the Rankings at Poplar Place

This weekend was Charley’s first Advanced run of the season and we are off to a great start. Charley was quite exuberant in the dressage ring and although we put in a solid test we ended up in 14th place within a very competitive field. As always, anything can happen come cross country day. Charley and I were on our game today with a clear run and the second fastest posted time of the day. We ended up in 3rd place after cross country and with just one rail in a very technical show jumping course we finished the event in second place only 0.8 behind the first place team of Colin Davidson and Draco. I’m looking forward to our next event which will be in two weeks at The Fork CIC***.

I also placed second in the Intermediate division on “As Time Goes By” and Janelle Caldwell who is my 2010 Working Student placed 7th in the Young Riders Preliminary Division.  Overall, the weekend was a huge success.
