Each week our friends at Horse Quencher sponsor an interview with a top rider. Today we meet Kristi Nunnink, who is competing at Rolex this week aboard her striking gray mare R-Star.
Samantha Clark caught up with Kristi and her husband Randy yesterday at the Kentucky Horse Park to talk about their epic journey from California to Lexington and discuss Kristi’s goals for the weekend.
Last year, Kristi and R-Star completed two four-stars and jumped clear around the Burghley cross-country course. This pair most recently finished third in Advanced at Twin Rivers at third in the Galway Downs CIC3* last month. It sounds like Kristi is looking for a competitive finish this week–top 5, she says. Pedal to the metal, girls, you can do it!
A big thanks to Samantha for sharing this interview.
Here’s a video of Kristi schooling her dressage with David O’Connor early Tuesday morning. Looking good, R-Star!

Go Kristi and R-Star!
