Looks like you had alot of fun! Great job for your first time out, nothing like wetting your toes, you'll soon be addicted.
SNOW!! YUCK!!! I hate snw....surrounded by it myself......blah.
Just some tips, I know it was your first time out, but for next time -
Open Fronts are a big no no for CC fences. If you have Splints, use those over the open fronts :)
Protective Vest - if you plan on riding CC fences more, please invest in a Certified and approved vest through ASTM and BETA testing. Intec Flex Rider, Charles Owen, Rodney Powell for examples.
Do you have an Eventing Coach? If you plan on riding CC more, please find one :) You cannot ride a CC fence the same way you ride a stadium fence.
Not wanting to make you feel bad or ruin your fun - I think it is great you got to go out, but I just want to ensure your safety for the next time :) This isn't a forgiving sport, the more you learn, the better :)
Ride on! Looking forward to seeing and hearing more about your CC adventures!
