Yay eventing!

I've done Novice, schooled Prelim with my past horse.

As soon as my current mare gets sound again, we will be picking up the season at BN (where we ended last season) and moving up to Novice!

May I ask how to get started in eventing ?
I am searching hard for a coach in my area that will do it but in the mean time what can I do to get myself going?

Great vid. I would love to do eventing later on.

There is one principle that should never be abandoned, namely, that the rider must first learn to control himself before he can control his horse. This is the basic, most important principle to be preserved in equitation - Alois Podhajsky

I don't do eventing, at least not yet. I can barely go over a crossrail jump,
But I still loved the video. Maybe when I'm not a supersized fail anymore, then will be one of the "strong" people lol.

Call me a chicken, call me a coward, just don't call me battered up from a horse fall.

depending on how old you are, pony club is a great way- that's how I got started. It really depends on your area since some states are more western then english and vice versa. What state do you live in? I can try and do some research for you since I've got nothing else to do today lol
