Early in the month of June, while training at home, Lauren had a fall when her horse tripped. Lauren sustained a few broken ribs and bruised her hip and pelvis. While she was hoping to be back competing sooner rather than later, the healing is taking a bit longer than originally anticipated! The goal is for Lauren to be back competing by Chantilly in July. Thank you for the well wishes from all that have already heard. She will see you very shortly!!

I would like to announce the end of Ohlala’s sporting career and the beginning of a new chapter of her life to focus on breeding. She is in very good health and very happy, but I just didn’t think that she would make it again to the very top of the sport with her injury from last year.
I would like to take a moment to thank my entire team and her wonderful owners for always allowing me to do what’s best for “Lala”. She has been a horse of a lifetime for me, and this was a difficult decision to come to terms with for me. However, I know in my heart that it’s the best one for her!
Thank you, Lala, for so many amazing victories all across the world... I'm not sure that I will ever replace you, but I hope to carry on your legacy with some beautiful foals! Lala, I know the sport will always remember you as the little mare with the biggest heart!
As pathfinder in the $35,700 CSI3* Longines World Ranking Competition at the 2019 Live Oak International CSI3*-W, Lauren Hough and Waterford led for more than half the opening speed class with a time of 65.68 seconds.
“I thought my horse jumped a very good round,” said Hough. “Going first, you never really know. If I had gone later there were a couple places I could’ve gone a bit quicker, but I’m thrilled.”
The next question in the #AskHough series is: “Where are your favorite places to ride and compete?”
Aachen is probably my most favorite outdoor show, and Geneva is probably my most favorite indoor one. Spruce Meadows in September for the Masters is another favorite. And for riding outside of the competition ring, I’m so lucky in both countries to have amazing facilities where my horses are really happy: Aston Farms in England and Windsome in Wellington, Florida.
The next question in the #AskHough series is: “Which TRM Ireland products do you use on your horses?”
My team and I use: Good As Gold paste, Good As Gold powder, Vitamin E2000, Everyday Gold, Gastrofos, Stride HA, SynBioVit, and Vita-E-Plus (all depending on the horse).
