“I am really excited to be at a team event with the rest of the members of our team. It’s a different atmosphere than most of our other shows and I’m really excited to be at the Kentucky Horse Park for the first time. We’re walking the cross country course tonight to get ready. We all have really awesome horses and we’re really confident going into the rest of the weekend. We have a great support team and fingers crossed we’ll have a really great outcome this weekend,” commented Lauren Clark
