Sheila Burke, of Elmira, NY, had her first taste of international glory winning the Grand Prix at CSIO Dublin in Ireland, part of the Samsung Super League Series, on August 8. Four of the five riders had clear rounds in the jump-off with Burke aboard 12-year-old Holsteiner mare, Caya (HOL, Carthago Z -), clenching the fastest time of .86 seconds ahead of Ireland’s Jessica Kürten. Residing in Holland for a little over a year, this is Burke’s biggest win. “It was fantastic, and the crowd, which was very well educated in show jumping, made it really exciting," says Burke.

Vaulting: The Sky is the Limit
It is magical, the combination of kids and horses, no matter what the discipline. But with vaulting, horse activity takes on new meaning when these athletes dance through the air, and creativity and courage are expressed on a cantering horse. While vaulting in the U.S. has been equestrian sport’s “road less traveled,” ask any older vaulter and he or she will tell you that vaulting changed their lives in a direction that continues on long after the horse has been put away, the equipment cleaned and one has gone on to the rest of their life, whether it still includes horses or not.
Read the full article from Equestrian magazine's July/August issue:
