thinking about entering a CTR
I saw a notice at my barn about a ctr in my area in October, i think a friend of a friend is organizing it. By October my horse will have spent 2 weeks with the trainer and will have been on countless trails and such with me (possibly some alone with the trainer but most i go on with other people.
I took down the organizers email but before i contact her i wanted some more info from anyone that's taken part in one of these events. What could i expect? Is it more about speed or accuracy? Would i be able to go along the trail with another horse, my friend might want to take her horse, or would i be expected to be able to ride alone?
I've heard they're fun events and my horse has been doing good, he tackled 2 downed trees on Sunday and didn't even flinch when he had to climb through the branches of one. He's getting better and doing so much better o trail, he even leads for half of the trail too, he's the calmest going in the direction of home so he gets to lead.
