Lol Novice/Training right now. I'll be looking for a prelim, possibly intermediate prospect sometime soon.

My gelding is officially retired from jumping now but he and I competed through novice and schooled training together before he sustained his injury.

This is Willie.

Hey there and welcome!

I jump to amateur level (up to about 3'6") and novice dressage.
My horse is a 9 year old anglo arab who was born and bred to jump, loves he job and does dressage just to keep me happy, I think!

Howdy and welcome to the forum! Glad to have another Eventer on board :)

When I bought Nelson, I had great hopes to get to Prelim with him, at the time when he came into my life, he was competing Prelim with his previous owner. But alas life happens.

With big goals to go N/T for the 2010 season, Nelson had a nasty accident where he caused his hind right leg to swell up like a balloon due to severe tissue damage, which then resulted in developing artritus in that hock, and a stifle that likes to lock once in a blue moon.

So we became professional BNers :P because that was where I felt he was most comfortable at. We did exceptionally well for the 1020 season......he cleaned house. He placed 3rd overall for BN Senior Horse, and I placed 1st overall for BN Senior Rider for all over area 8 Eventing.

So, 2011 can remain the same, or we can move up as planned. Doesn't matter, just so long as we do it together, that's what is most important to me. He loves this sport, and if that means we stay at BN until he retires, well, then so be it.

He'll tell me when he's done, until then I am enjoying every moment I have with him.

Here we are eventing over the 2010 season:

Nice pics! And good for you for not pushing your horse past his limitations...there are too many people (especially in the eventing world) who do not give their horse such consideration. I do not know how to post pics in a thread yet (although I watched the tutorial! lol..) but I do have some pics up of Monroe going XC on my main page..just schooling, we don't have any good competition shots :(
