Gina Miles talks about the Cross Country Track for the Rolex Kentucky competition on April 25th 2009. Gina talks about her predictions for who will do well and who she is rooting for and walking through the course walk fency-by-fence. She explains what tests the rider will face at each jump and how the fences will need to be ridden. This is one of the only four star courses in the world and the tests riders will face are intense and will be exciting for spectators and will demand the best riding and concentration from both horse and rider.

As a little girl, Gina Ostini Miles kept asking for a horse, a request that led to lessons at Happy Horse Riding School in Davis when she was 7.
When she was 10, she went to the 1984 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles and watched the cross-country portion of an equestrian competition called eventing and knew that's what she wanted to do.
Her father bought her a pony at an auction for $170 when she was 11, continuing a horse-centered life that reached a peak at the 2008 Olympics.
