I've been spending the year as a working student for an upper level eventer in Maryland, and while working I've also been riding and competing a retired CCI*** event horse that she uses for lessons. Ace and I have been schooling 2nd/3rd level movements and now that he's fit(ter) and now that I've finally figured out how to be a (slightly) more sophisticated rider I'm not embarassed to share some video!
Ace is a 25 year old English Thoroughbred and is still going strong! His only real barriers are some arthritic hocks, which have been helped enormously by hock injections that he received in August. Now we're getting ready to run around preliminary at a show in about two weeks! It's not his first walk in the park at that level, but it is my first run at prelim and I'm so, so grateful that I've got such a freaking amazing horse to ride. We both get tense in the dressage phase and I'm finally starting to work through my own little mental block when it comes to dressage. :)
