I've crossed over from the Hunter/Jumper board a few times to share my pictures of my hunters schooling cross country, but for the first time I went with an Eventing trainer to school cross country on my mom's OTTB ... with the goal of competing this year! We seem to be somewhere between BN and Novice - physically capable of Novice but my brain weenies out and feel more comfortable with BN so will probably stay at that level. Everything is so wide! And I keep envisioning him putting his feet IN the ditches or ON the doghouses. YuckkkK!!
Anyways .. some pictures of his transformation...

Excited about competing in 2013!
