August 3, 2012–Being in London is just fantastic! Our entire team is quite excited. This is the first time of my three trips to the Olympics that our competition venue has been located with all of the primary sporting venues and it adds to the level of excitement for sure.
The organizers have done a great job with the stabling and security. Via settled right in with her groom, Clark Shipley and all of our team horses have passed the jog.
My John Madden Sales team back home in Cazenovia, NY are ready, too. Click through the photo gallery above to see a couple of the pictures from home. Support and messages like this are really touching.
Competition starts tomorrow and we are ready!
Editor’s note:The U.S. show jumping riders have received their order of go for the team. McLain Ward will ride first, followed by Reed Kessler second, Rich Fellers third and Beezie Madden fourth.
