I just got home from my very first CTR! It was also my horse's first ever CTR. We are changing careers after a long halter/western/hunter pleasure show career on the Arab circuit. Fusion is an 18 year old Half Arabian who is very excited to be doing CTR instead of boring circles in a boring arena!
We did a 15 mile Novice ride, since it was our first time I wanted to take it kinda easy. I was so happy with my girl - she went through everything like a pro. She even drank out of the creek on our second creek crossing :) We ended up finishing 1st in lightweight novice, 2nd overall novice, and my girl got best performance Hal Arabian novice! I am so proud of her <3
Everyone we met was super nice, and incredibly helpful. I think we are hooked on our new sport already!
