    I'm done with Eventing

    I used to be passionate about Eventing as a true partnership. Used to compete many times a year, organized horse trials, then helped organize parts of several events. Last year I helped organize four...

    Sadly we resolved this problem....

    We stopped eventing.

    After years and years, we threw in the towel this spring. It was a hard decision as we have competed for years, organized recognized HTs, volunteered at about 6-8 HTs per...

    I love MDHT!

    Yes - I agree. MDHT is beautiful. Don't worry - stadium will ride great.

    I'm not sure I'd want to even visit, unless there was one of those nice small arctic animals waiting inside to handily repair my discombobulated stock tie.

    On that subject, I think there is an...

    YES! PLEASE!!!!

    I 100% agree - but how do we differentiate the riders who CAN ride a horse who CAN do it, from those who can't?
