Don't take offense or anything! I've been riding for 8 years, and I'm only getting good enough to get to novice level! Eventing is a hard sport to move up in because of the dangers of it.

Everyone always does. Even George Morris, The GOD of modern jumping, says he always is learning something new. Like at my last lesson, the jumps were TINY (2'3" MAYBE) but we were working on turning, and it was difficult at first, but the I got into the hang of it. There's always something new to learn and try. That's what great about our sport

That's right, Eventing isn't a sport to jump levels quickly, that's when the horse/rider team end up getting into trouble.

I say stay at 1 level for a full season - OR if you place top 3 in minimally 3 USEA rated HT's. HT's that are not USEA rated/recognized will not be as technical, as difficult as USEA HT's are.

Ooooh, but you are in Canada. It has been a very long time since I Evented back in Canada, so I am unsure how things work now.

Haha that's what I love about the sport. All ages compete at whatever level and there seems to be no one pushing you more than your capable of
