August 12:  Eventing Nation, the go-to journal of eventing, has published a glowing report about Alice Roosevelt and The Foreman, her 19 year old thoroughbred gelding whom she credits with her recent successes.  Last weekend the pair were fourth in the Junior Training A division at Millbrook Horse Trials. 

Chip, as he is called in the barn, became a legend in U.S. eventing before he retired from the upper levels of competition.  Last winter when Alice was looking for an experienced horse to take her to the Training level, Chip’s owner, Annie Jones, thought he might be the answer. And so it has proved.  

“It’s been really fun and educational to get to ride him, especially in dressage because he knows all the different movements,” Alice told Eventing Nation. “It’s also been really cool to compete him because he saves you a lot over the jumps. When you make a mistake, it’s not game over. He really takes care of you on course.”
