We are disappointed to inform his fans that HND Group’s Mighty Nice has sustained a small soft tissue injury in training and will not be competing this spring. With the final U.S. selection trial for the World Equestrian Games being held in June, Happy will not be able to qualify before the cut off date. His welfare is always our top priority. We will give Happy all the time he needs to return to form and plan to have him back out competing in the fall.
While we are all sad to have Happy on the sidelines during a major championships, this is also an exciting opportunity for my younger horses to step up. I am extremely fortunate to have a strong string of horses competing at the highest level of the sport in 2018. I am indebted to my owners, sponsors, family and supporters as we look ahead to the World Equestrian Games. Thank you to ALL for your support.
