I thought, that since I have such a passion for this sport - that it would be great to beable to share it with others on this forum who share the same love.
I would love to hear about yourself and your horse and see pictures of you guys in action!
My name is Kimberly and I've been Eventing since I joined Pony Club way back in my High School days. I grew up on 40 acres, where I would beable to ride out in the open.
I never knew what an arena was at that time, nor did I know what in the world I was doing - but I was doing it and having fun! lol. I grew up jumping natural obsticles - I guess you can say I was Eventing, before I even knew what Eventing was.
I was jumping fallen tree's. This old Stone Wall that was falling apart. Ditches, Creeks, hedges - anything and everything that looked jumpable.
Then I joined the local Pony Club and went from there. That was when I was introduced to the arena. Dressage and Stadium Jumping.
Aside from Eventing, I love to Fox Hunt and do Hunter Paces and Hunter Trials.
Anyways, I am babbling - my appologies.
Here are some pictures:
My Husbands horse and I Eventing together. We placed 4th out of 30 competators. We'd of won if I didn't screw up in the stadium phase, we were 2nd at that point and bumped downto 4th.
And here is the Big Man himeslf - Nelson and I:
