Nelson's And My Second Event In The 2010 Season

Had a great time with my friends! Well, I actually had a blast!

Our small group hauled in Saturday, and set up camp and got ourselves prepared for the long day ahead. While we were walking the course, in the pouring rain - we came across a bunch of Eventing Friends from the past, and were able to reconnect and share the day together.

I LOVE that part about Eventing - seeing old friends and buddies who share the same passion for this sport, reconnecting and catching up!

After we walked the course, we dried ourselves off and sat under the tarp that was set up between our trailers, in lawn chairs. Lots of great laughs and great people to share it with!

We enjoyed a fabulous BBQ and had a great time talking about life, past HT's, future HT's and more.

~~~~

So the day of the HT, Nelson and I were up against 10 riders, includig my Coach - lol. To be honest, the organizers of the HT didn't do a great job at keeping the competators in the "class" they registered for.

I signed up for BN Rider, and ended up in a group with competators who signed up for BN Horse - so there was a mixture of both Rider and Horse in each levels categories. So where I shouldn't of compeated against my Coach, when she was siged up for BN Horse, we still ended up in the same class together, along with others who signed up for a category and didn't end up in it.

Anyways, there were 10 of us in this one Beginner Novice Class. Beginner Novice B.

Dressage - dressage was aweful. *smacks forehead* We scored a 41.0, an all time low for us. We ended up 9th after dressage. OMFG! Lots to work on from now to our next event.



Then came CC. I made a big boo boo, which now I know not to do again...BUT after our 5th fence, we were ahead of time...so I pulled back, which made us loose time..so we ended up with 14 time penalties for CC because we came in a tad bit overtime.

Here is the 1st 1/2 of our CC. The recording was stopped after fence 5 beacuse we went into the forrested area.


And then 2nd 1/2 of our CC phase, just as we came out of the forrested area. Don't watch the horse that is closer to your eye sight, because that's not us. That is the horse/rider team who rode after us....look waaaay back, past fence 5, and you'll find Nelson and I...


So we were 7th after CC...another alltime low for us....

And then Stadium. We did great on our stadium, and man Nelson was jumping powerful! We went from 7th and placed 2nd overall.

Nice job! Nice T-seat! Stupid question. In stadium, does whoever does the course the quickest place 1st in that phase, or is it more like an optimum time?

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.

Thanks MyBoyPuck - haha - I worked xtra hard on that T-Seat!!! ROFL!

Not a stupid question. There is an optimum time for stadium, so you will incure time penalities if you ride your course too slow. It is about how well you do in all 3 phases.

Does that make sense? I'm tired, so I am not sure if I am helping at all.

Great job! Nelson looks fant-abulous!

And MyBoyPuck, MIE's right - the only way you can hurt your score in stadium is going over the maximum time and/or dropping rails. As long as everything is in it's cups and you're within the time, you can only stay the same or move up in the placings (due to other people's faults) :)
