Confu is worthy of hours of footage with all that he’s accomplished in his nine young years, particularly in this season’s Nations Cups: Their performances helped the United States claim the gold medal in Dublin and also the silver medal in the FEI Nations Cup Final in Barcelona.

As for this past weekend, Laura and Confu are still adjusting to the tight quarters of the indoors and had an unlucky couple of rails in the World Cup Qualifier, but there’s still plenty of time to make magic happen.
