Hi All- Take a peek and tell me what you think!

Hi all,

This was the first ODE my mare and i have ever been to. She ended up 9th over all but was actually 2nd after the dressage section, 3rd after the showjumping but she was very green round the cross country course and so we dropped down to 9th.

Still very proud of her!! Let me know what you all think of our first attempt at the whole one day event thing! hehehe


Only this pic of the showjumping as my chap forgot he had the camera till id gone round! grr


Not many of the course but this is what he got from where he was stood.

What do you all think? Any good?

First of all congrats !

I don't think you did too bad for your first time. Sounds like you already know were you need some work. Beautiful horse btw.

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

Oh thank you!

She is a good girl, sooo stubben sometimes! Only 2weeks ago i was posting in the training section about how terrible and hormonal she has been, but she just came good on the day! I think she likes the competition atmosphere. Unlike me who crumbles under the pressure! lol She actually holds me together bless her....but hey the more we do it the better we will get hopefully!

If anybody spots anything please do say!

Sounds like you two did great! Congrats! Just be careful you don't get ahead of your jumping, especially cross country. Don't want you flying off over your horses head if it stops!
