Losing Elizabeth Taylor

Today we lost Elizabeth Taylor who was not only one of Hollywood’s great leading ladies, but also a cinematic 3-day eventing star with her turn as ‘Velvet’ in National Velvet.  It seems like a nice time to take a trip down memory lane with her and her equine friend, Pie.  We’ll remember her and strive to emulate her effortless glamour and bravery.

  1. Well, no. The Grand National is a steeplechase run under the UK’s National Hunt rules. International Velvet, the sequel with Tatum O’Neal, is about eventing.


  2. Hi Yatima, Thanks for reading Three Days Three Ways! You’re right about National Velvet being about steeplechasing. We talked about it before on Three Days Three Ways here: http://www.threedaysthreewaysblog.com/2010/07/22/forget-baseball-eventing-is-americas-favorite-pastime/.
    International Velvet may be explicitly about eventing….but I still say Elizabeth Taylor captures the spirit of eventing! I’ll take it. Thanks for your quick eye and, always, for reading.
