I can't wait until I can start learning eventing! Next year I believe I may be switching.... Right now I'm getting down my eq and learning jumping, once I can do that I will switch to an eventing barn.

I've been watching Rolex too and I love watching it! But, I'm not really familiar with English events and stuff...so in cross country what is considered a good time and score?

Sit tall in the saddle, hold your head up high. Keep your eyes fixed where the trail meets the sky. And live like you ain't afraid to die. Don't be scared, just enjoy your ride - Chris LeDoux

Each course has an optimum time.. Rolex is 11:21 this year. You get penalties for going over time, but at the higher levels you do not get penalties for going under time (Unlike in lower levels, when going under time is also bad). There are penalties for refusals and run-outs but as long as they get over it they basically get no penalties.

Hi STBR! Can you give us a few details about yourself? If you have already introduced yourself, you might have to do it again just to jog our memories.

I may seem small, but if you mess with my horse, I will break out a level of crazy that will make your nightmares seem like a happy place.

Had an awesome lesson today, we really worked on my stupid toes and keeping them in... Dollar bills between your thigh and saddle are really annoying! Especially on a bouncy horse! Here is a picture...

I'm glad you had an awesome lesson Almond Joy. :) What breed is the horse you're riding? He looks big!
