Rolex 3Day Event

Sooo since Eventing is mostly jumping... I thought I would put this in the jumping forum.

I was wondering if anyone here is going to Rolex or if they plan on watching it on tv. Some place they are showing it Live...
Also, I was wondering if any eventers plan on becoming 4* eventers and going to large shows such as Rolex.

Thanks :)

I will definitely be trying to watch it (I have bunny ears to watch tv lol). Or I may watch it at my friends house

Going to compete in the rolex, any four star event really, has been my dream. I want to get onto the canadian olympic eventing team, so we can finally kick some but! lol.

He knows when you're confident.
And he always knows when you have carrots.

One day we will see you in the Olympics on the Canadian team, and at Rolex!
I dont think I will ever reach that level of eventing, but my horse and I are getting better and better everyday. Were only jump beginner novice right now (hes 5 and off the track) but hey. You have to start somewhere. haha

I am listening to the Eventing Radio Show coverage of it right now! I love eventing, and if I don't get to ride around Rolex, you will see me in the vet box!

*sigh*, what Eventer doesn't dream of going to Rolex?????

You either have to be exceptionally talented as a rider, to gain sponsors. Orrrr, you have to be very wealthy.

I, have neither. lol.
