We spent wednesday getting reorganized, doing laundry and taking care of the horses. Yesterday the event rally started, the rest of our team arrived and we got everything set up in our tack/feed rooms, we did our jog outs/horse inspections, walked our crosscountry course and had a competitor briefing. The horse park filled up fast!! There are over 350 horses here for the horse trials, beginner novice through advanced and the Olympic competitor Gina Miles is here riding three different horses we were excited to watch.
Today was formal turnout inspections and dressage, we both had good formals and our team is currently in 1st for horse management. We both also had great dressage rides. Our CHMJ is pretty cool and let us leave a little early tonight so we had some playtime to try out riding the statues, but we have to be at the barn by 6:30 in the morning again tomorrow so its time for us to go to bed!
We'll keep you posted on our progress, we ride showjump tomorrow or you guys can check out start box scoring online to see scores for the entire event.
