True confession here – I’m not big into eventing. I know it’s intense and hard and a huge adrenaline rush, but it’s not really a sport for me. I can’t get over how terrifying cross country looks, and I’m not a big fan of watching eventing dressage or show jumping. That being said, everyone has Rolex fever right now… and I certainly have my favorite pair to win.
Why I want Becky Holder & Can’t Fire Me to take it all!
- She rides OTTBs! Can’t Fire Me and Courageous Comet are both OTTBs (I’m sure she has others, but you’d have to ask someone that knows more about eventing than I do)
- She trains in North Carolina – my home state, which means she has great taste in both horses and living areas
- She’s not a size 2. I would never call Becky a plus sized rider, but she reminds me that not everyone who is successful in horses has to have skinny legs a mile long and moonlight as an American Apparel model.
- She’s a great clinician. I don’t know this first hand, but enjoyed reading The Becky Diaries at Team Flying Solo where I picked up a lot of good information.
Last reason? Just watch their dressage round… how could you not want them to win?
Becky is obviously my pick for Rolex Fevah 2013… but who do you want to win?
