Vet Box Moments at Rolex 2010

The rains and winds held off for all the riders on the Rolex 2010 cross-country course today keeping the footing clean and the skies clear.  It turns out we needed sunglasses rather than Dubarrys after all!  Without the rain fans could relax in the sunshine and I could take lots more pictures including these moments from the vet box today.

Below Karen O’Connor‘s Mandiba gets a cool shower after his clean cross country picking up only 4.8 time faults putting them in a solid sixth place.

Water troughs lined the vet box paddock filled with ice water in order to bring their temperatures down as quickly and safely as possible.  The process is monitored by on-site veterinarians until they deem the horse able to return to the stables.

Boyd Martin‘s team of grooms cools Remington XXV after his clean cross-country run with only 5.8 time faults putting them in 15th place heading into tomorrow’s show jumping.

One of Phillip Dutton‘s grooms leads Ann Jone’s Woodburn into the vet box after his clean cross-country round that put he and his top rider in an exciting fourth place heading into showjumping.

This friend watched as every horse and rider came through the finish flags.  Now worries, he says, everything is under control.

Team Laine Ashker helped her cool Anthony Patch in the vet box after a dynamite run on today’s cross-country course.  Laine had a fall last year at Rolex so coming home clean and safe made more than once person tear up with happiness for her.  No doubt including her own mother, friends, and family who greeted her at the finish line with a group hug and tears.  Congrats to Laine for her grit, determination, and bravery. And a cross-country ride that left her in a solid 18th place.

This sweet little one found an ideal spot in the shade to watch the vet box bustle.

Last Monarch’s entourage, the “Stew Crew”, and a team of vets meet him after the clean round that his pilot, Holly Hudspeth, handled nicely despite being held on course for an issue in front of her.  Despite this extra challenge to their run they came in with no jump penalties and only 11.6 time penalties putting them in 21st and within arm’s reach of tomorrow’s awards. Note to all our readers, these are the shirts that grooms Ashley and Kaylie told us about when they posed in their matching hats and polos.  Team spirit never looked so stylish.

Buck Davidson in the legendary red and yellow comes home clean and safe to a mother’s hug, adding only 10.8 time penalties to his and Ty’s dressage score putting them in 22nd. Keep an eye on these two tomorrow.  Buck is always cool under pressure.

Buck Davidson’s expert groom, Mackenzie Booth, leads Titanium into the vet box after his cross-country round with a congratulatory pat.  Good boy Ty.

A smiling Mackenzie walks Ty to cool out in the Rolex vet box. Of course she’s smiling, Titanium was dynamite on cross-country.

Holly Hudspeth and Last Monarch supporters look on at the Rolex vet box in their “Stew Crew” tees.

I hope you’ve enjoyed these Rolex 2010 vet box moments.  More to come!
