The ticket prices are announced and we discuss them with Ellen Gregory, PR for the WEG Foundation. Plus, we reveal our choice for the 2010 Radio Show Spotlight Vaulters this week.  This is the only discipline where we will be following a team in their quest to qualify and get selected for the Alltech FEI 2010 World Equestrian Games.  Congratulations to the English Vaulting Squad and hear what they had to say.  Listen in… 2010 Radio Show Episode 45 – Show Notes and Links:

  • We are thrilled to announce the Spotlight team we will be following for Vaulting from now through the 2010 Games.  We would like to congratulate the English Riding Squad out of England for being our Spotlight team!  The English Vaulting Squad was formed in 2000 by a group of committed vaulters and parents who wished to advance up to International level.  We had a chance to speak with Gill Barham and a couple of the kids on the team as they were preparing to leave for Achen for a big competition.
