Lets see your cross country pictures!!! And please state what level you're jumping in the pictures (beg. novice, novice, training, etc)!

I think that not only will this be fun, but it will help those of us new to eventing to recognize the difference in levels.

P.S. (Sorry if a similar post has already been done... I didn't see one though)

All but the last one are Training/Pre-Novice/3'3"/1.00 m however you want to measure the height. The last one is a Novice/Intro/2'11" (no idea what it is in metres) fence.

let me preface this by saying i am not an eventer. i don't even play one on tv. i came to this thread to oogle at the brave people jumping things i wouldn't even think of attempting. but for comparison (comic relief?), i figured i would post my cross country jumping efforts.

i ride endurance. the mare i am riding does endurance. she'd never been anywhere near a cross country jump before. we were invited to ride in a hunter pace by eventer friends, who encouraged us to try hopping over the small stuff during the ride. apparently peer pressure still works in old age, as i tried a few of the smaller jumps. one thing i learned was endurance-length stirrups (which are comparable to dressage length) are NOT helpful when it comes to jumping. go figure. :lol:









can't wait to see more pics from actual eventers!

lol dawn i love those pics! here are some of me and duke competing BN






the last one is my fave :) and it cracks me up how my horse makes the jumps look teensy. once he relaxes and remembers he has a brain we will move up a level (we schooled N as well but haven't showed in ages so i always go down a level when getting back into competing).

fun thread!!!

Is that an arab?! :)
Do you have a youtube channel? Once I just searched arabian eventing and a video popped up with a little grey eventer that was a little super start. If its not you, it surely looks like you! :)

MIE:
I just love that training drop picture! Nelson looks like he's having so much fun jumping in the puddles and you look serious/intense! :)

It's funny you say that - because that's exactly how he is! LOL! When you get onto that Cross Country Course, and he locks into a fence - he'll have a temper tantrum if you pull him off of it! Yeah! I am not lying!!

His mentallity out there is "Lookit, either you're coming with me, or without me...but I'm going over it!"

My face expression, it's funny - because everyone says the same thing! But I honestly wasn't scared! lol. I was thinking though "Ok, let the reins slide through my hands, and coffin canter" lol



Great pics Drew!
