So I decided this year I wanted to do something different with my mare, last year we tried western, the year before barrel racing (have video on trot), this year is eventing! We both went into this not knowing much and I've been taking lessons from a trainer that's been doing eventing for awhile.
I know we aren't perfect (or any where near it), but I wanted to share pictures from our first informal event. A local Pony Club put on a Jumping Derby which is cross country and stadium jumps combined. Our jumps were a max 2ft so not that big
My girl is really game and it's a challenge to get her to slow down and chill out. We did a lot of trotting in between fences to we didn't go way under our optimal time. She seems to really enjoy the jumping...and well....the dressage is somewhere LOL
