Earlier this week, I took a clinic with big-time British eventer Lucinda Green. We struggled on the first day, but we did well out on the cross-country course on the second day. Happily, now Lila and I are very ready for our first novice-level event in mid-May.
Mostly, I’m just amazed that we were able to jump this Normandy Bank:
It was a looooong drop down for us — somewhere between 4 and 4.5 feet. I still can’t believe that we did it! Lila didn’t even hesitate. That’s my girl!
Meanwhile, I’ve begun looking in earnest for a second event horse — hopefully, a horse that I can take up through preliminary level, at least.
Oh, and if you want to see some really amazing eventing, check out the live feed of the Rolex Three Day Event this morning. The cross-country phase starts at 10 am ET!
