    Haha I was so nervous, this season being my first of eventing (and showing for that matter!) and my horse's first as well. So I basically counted down WITH the person LOL That way my mind wouldn't wander to all the things that *could* go wrong!

    LOL that's pretty much how it went!! they were like "3, 2, 1, and you're on course" and I thought to myself "huh, well I'd be in more of a hurry but since this is Intro and is not timed, guess I can walk off now!" lol

    ^hahahaha! I love that feeling on XC, when your up in galloping position, the wind in your hair, your horse powering beneath you, breathing in unison, it's something no other sport can stand up to!

    I normally get really excited as they r counting down. Also im going over the course quickly in my head to make sure I know where im going and I have to think about what my trainer told me while we were walking the course.

    Usually it is me gasping for air because I am so out of shape, and thinking to myself "where is that **** finish line?" and wondering if by me laying myself on Nelson's neck between fences would give me a few moments rest to be ready for the next fence.

    Well we had some stupid rule put in this season that pretraining and lower werent allowed to use the watch totally useless rule Imo. So starting the watch will commence first event next year lol. I also usually get mad butterflies in my stomach, and we have one guy who does alot of the countdowns all year so I talk with him for a little.

    Haha, I'm pretty in shape, and I'm going to get into shape more by running and such over the off season, If my horse is doing all this for me I feel that I need to be WAY much better than I am, but I am the same way on XC! And when they hand you that water at the finish line, I chug like 3 bottles! Lol those boy scouts that were handing them out probably thought I was crazy!

    Don't run, stay away from running. That is the worse thing to do to your body. The shock and impaction that your joints take during this activity is high.

    If you can, get your parents to buy an Elypictal Trainer, or take up swimming over the winter.

    Stay away from running.
