Anyone events or showed at Greenwood Farm Tx?
 
I live near by Greenwood Farm in Texas and was thinking about showing in their horse trials but I wanted to know if how it was run and stuff good. Anyone ever been there?

YES.

I love Greenwood. It's very well run, the courses are a blast (though they are generally maxed out, so be prepared) and it's one of my favorite Area V events, by far.

What do you mean by "maxed out"? I'm new to the sport of eventing so still trying to learn the language haha ;)

Basically the jumps are as high and wide as they're allowed to be per USEA specifications, as well as course length. They tend to present the difficult questions for the level.

Pretty much, but at the same time it's not scary. I don't know how to describe it. I really enjoy the challenge that their courses offer. What level will you be competing? Their lower levels are still quite welcoming. There isn't much that you can make technical with starter-novice.
