WE DID IT!!!! We accomplished our goal of making the United States Team for the 2014 Altech World Equestrian Games in Normandy France! I am so proud, and so excited and so honored to have had the support of all of you along the way! Kam was amazing and my coach Dennis Callin was able to push our performance to a whole new level. It was so comforting to be surrounded by my good friends, my parents, Scott and especially my son Logan. Katie Hill (Kam’s owner) was also able to join us flying in from the Netherlands to watch us sweep our divisions and earn a spot representing the USA! Read More >>
Exciting things have been happening on the road to Normandy! We had our last World Equestrian Games qualifier two weeks ago. We competed well, winning high point in the Team competition, and being narrowly edged out of first in the Freestyle competition. During the Individual test, Kam was a horse and spooked at a bush that was moved over 4 inches from the day before. He’s a stallion so he notices these things. It was costly to our score and put us in second overall.
As you can see, I have renamed all of you (supporters, friends, and family) Team Kamburger in honor of my horse Kamiakin who we affectionately call “Kam” or “Kamburger” in the barn. We have a tradition of naming our horses silly or cute barn names and this one seemed to stick…
Well, we’re at it again! 2014 is another World Equestrian Games year and I’m throwing my hat back into the international ring to represent the United States. With me will be my new partner, a 9 year old stallion named Kamiakin! We will be trying out for a spot on the United States Para-Dressage Team, the same U.S. Team on which I competed in the 2010 WEG with Moneypenny.
Pamela sits down with Kam to discuss his background, how he feels about his partnership with Susan and his thoughts on the future. Pamela: I notice you have an unusual name will you share with us what it means? Kamiakin: This name was given to me by my breeder, Ami McHugh. SheRead More >>
