Spring is in the air, and this weekend saw horses galore soaring to new heights in celebration of the new season! At the Saut Hermès in Paris, Ukrainian horse Cathleen 28 won the Grand Prix Hermès, completing the five-star course in just under 33 seconds. Meanwhile in Hastings, New Zealand, 11-year-old mare Dunstan Daffodil took home top honors in the Olympic Cup Horse of the Year competition, proving that you don't have to be a Spring chicken to be a champion. And in England, four days of steeplechase racing culminated in Synchronised, a 9-year-old gelding, winning the coveted Cheltenham Gold Cup. (Fancy) hats off to these amazing equines, and may your Spring be as hoppy as theirs!
