Enjoy it, it's the best sport in the world!!! *just a little bias*
That what amazes me about xcountry! Your horse knows nothing about the course/jumps/banks/etc. and just trusts the rider completely :)

I'm excited about my search for an ottb for eventing, but jumping/dressage until then. We will be learning xcountry together :)

Well, not necessarily nothing about the jumps and such. Usually you go schooling and encounter similar questions, you just don't put ALL of it together until a show. And once you've schooled one roll top you've basically schooled them all. It just comes down to having a bold horse that yes, trusts you, but is also willing and enjoys jumping.

Yes - lots of schooling! And Clinics!

This is a shot of Nelson and I at a Clinic under a 3* Eventer.



We schooled that drop quite a few times! Now, I am a drop deeva :P

Exactly - you have to have the right partner for this sport! If you don't have the right partner, you wont get far - that goes for any discipline.

Top Level Eventers, go through many mounts until they find the right one. Too dangerous of a sport to not have the right mount under ya :)

MIE, I love that picture, looks like it was fun!

I'm so psyched to start eventing Excel. I've been hacking him out on trail and he's doing great

That looks like fun! I'm stoked to start :)
I planned on doing some trailing when I get my ottb just to give its brain a break, and do some hill work. I guess that will be a good way to test bravery too :)

I went to my first training day today fro XC, sooo much fun

Only did the smallest possible jumps but it was soo much fun, there were serval drops that Buzz didn't like but with some convincing he took them like a pro
