Eight-Time USEF National Four-in-Hand Driving Champion, Chester Weber (USA)

My team and I are in full swing for this summer’s events. We have made the decision to train and compete in North American this year and prepare for WEG. It was a tough decision, we love competing in Europe but I feel that training and competing here is a smart decision. I have had the opportunity to compete under several European judges this season and we feel confident in our choice.

This summer I plan to fine-tune the horses at Garden State (CAI Allentown), CAI Bromont, and Iron Horse CDE in Illinois. I feel this will give us the chance to reach our goal and have the horses peak at WEG.

Meanwhile, the team made their debut on TV last month. NRHA is hosting a Countdown to the 2010 Alltech World Equestrian Games sponsored by Adequan, featuring different disciplines each episode. This particular episode featured driving. Check out the video on the NRHA Inside Reining website, visit

While I am busy schooling the horses at home I recently attended school, this time in front of the class. I visited the Central Florida Community College and attended an Exercise Physiology class for the Equine Studies Department. It was the last class of the semester and I summarized to the students my training and conditioning program for my horses. I spoke specifically about my feeding program, cardiovascular conditioning and how I maintain soundness through post-exercise therapy and regular veterinary evaluation. The students were fantastic and it is great experience to help influence the future of the horse industry.
