Well my dream has always been to event and since I stopped riding Junior and started riding with a lady named Jess I thought I would have to give up that dream. But after talking to Jess she told me that she has one horse that could do cross country.
Well the horse is named Magic and he is an Arabian gelding. I thought he was only trained for western pleasure but I found out that she trained him to jump as well. According to her he absolutely loves to jump and has the stamina to event.
I am going to start working with him over fences first and then take him onto the XC course sometime this summer. So any suggestions on ways to help him adjust? He already knows how to jump and really enjoys it but his main career has been western pleasure. He is tired of being in the arena though and just doesn't want to perform as a WP horse so Jess thinks that switching him and trying him out on the XC course would be good for both of us.
Any suggestions are welcome! :]
