The other TOTALLY AWESOME thing is I will be getting to ride with Jil again twice before the minievent.
I rode with her whenever she was at my other instructors and didn't think I would get a chance to get lessons from her for awhile. I'm super excited! She just got back from riding the Rolex and although she fell on the second to last element on XC she and My Sedona did an awesome job! I'm hoping to pick her brain about her experience there! :)
I would definitely take advantage of such situations! But good luck at your first event!
