Upon arriving, Bruce was teaching several riders, including Rock on Rose's current owner, Whitney Weston, who's taken up residence in Chester County. Whitney was here to lesson on her newest 4 legged interest, a big Holsteiner gelding who she found in Aaron Vale's barn in Ocala. Elvis' previous life was as a jumper, but Whitney saw eventing talent and is now retraining him to love eventing, with Bruce's help. Boy does this horse have a great gallop!

The "left coasters" were also out in full force, with Kelly Prather and Frankie Thieriot out in the stadium field. Kelly has relocated to train out of Chesterland and Frankie has joined her during the spring/summer season while her beau, none other than Mike Stutes, pitches for the Phillies! We'll have more on Kelly and Frankie as the season progresses.

Maddie also has Khoi Traveler in her line-up, an 8 year old OTTB who just finished his first 1* at the Va Horse Trials, finishing 9th. He's on the same schedule as Gordy, and is scheduled to do a couple intermediates before Millbrook in August.

Rolex had a beautiful and feisty little filly 3 days ago and they were out in the small paddock during the day. The new filly was enjoying the use of her long legs and keeping Rolex on her toes. The other foals who were born about a month ago (2 filles and a colt out of Jam) were out in the big field with all the other mares, enjoying their time playing in the pond. All of Charlie's babies are such curious and personable creatures!
