So I've been thinking for a while about doing eventing, and I've decided that I think my horse and I would really love it and quite possibly be successful. I am moving barns soon, and I am going to have access to a trainer who knows a lot about eventing. However, my current trainer knows diddly squat so...
I stumbled upon this clinic today and I'm thinking about doing it.
It's an intro to eventing clinic about 2 hours from me. Here is the entry form. http://www.nhdea.org/uploads/2/9/1/9...ation_form.pdf
My only problem is I've never ridden cross country, nor taken my gelding cross country. I also haven't worked dressage with him much, but that is not as big of a problem. Would it be a very bad idea to sign up for this clinic? It says she is good with greenies...
I just really want to know if he has potential for eventing before I jump off the deep end, ya know?
I consider myself a pretty experienced rider, my gelding and I have schooled up to 3'3". I was originally going to show him in local H/J shows this summer, then I realized I was getting bored...
Hmm, maybe I could email them and ask
or just list my experience as none
on the entry form and see what they say
What do you guys think?
