    I am in Prince Edward Island, Canada.
    We do have eventing clinics here but they are quite far away. The lady will be coming to our barn in the spring however I'd love to work on somethings now:)

    Just wondering exercises and things to do to get myself and my mare started.

    I loveeee this video! It truly speaks wonders about our sport. My first year competing in eventing was 2010. Did 2 horse trials on my Fjord and won 7th out of 30+ and 5th out of 40+. Was so proud of him and myself, our first year showing ever! We did Pre-Entry which is the first level so I'm assuming its Beginner Novice? This year I plan to show on my new CWB mare Regena which I'm hoping to buy this summer and eiter me or my mom will be eventing the Fjord and POA and I might be on a second CWB if I get him sent to me for training.

    these arent specific exercises but here is a link to the canada dressage tests( you will have to do one as the first phase) The first two are for the level you will most likely start out( forgive me if im wrong since they are different names then what the US calls them but by the looks of it, they are for BN aka 2'6 jumps for the later phases) Downloads | National Dressage Tests | Eventing (top level) | English
    If you have trouble understanding how to ride this, try ad find someone in the area who knows eventing dressage-or even just dressage to have them explain it

    For show jumping, (the second phase) you should work on gymnastics with your horse in a closed arena. Get used to also jumping roughly a nine jump course at 2'6. (unless you plan on doing the next level up for some reason)

    For cross country(the last and in my opinion the best phase!), take your horse out in the open and get comfortable with cantering and jumping in the open, this is important since you want to be able to let your horse go but still know you will have ultimate control.
