    Eventing Princess Guest

    Talking Is there such a thing as an Eventing Princess?

    So we've all heard of Hunter Princesses and Dressage Queens, but is there such a thing as an Eventing Princess? If so, what defines them? How would you spot one? etc.

    Hmmm... I think you must have an idea since it's your username.

    Yes, there are EP's.

    They have the newest/ whatever's "in" at the moment for the sport.

    Oh yeah, and they're probably always spotless... I loathe these types of horse people!

    Yes, but they don't make it past the first water jump.

    There are a few stereotypes that would probably fit the bill, but none of them are particularly flattering. Kind of like most stereotypes.

    I picture the young, wealthy person on an imported ex **** horse going around Training level.

    But given the opportunity, I would LOVE to have an ex **** horse and might just do the same thing, even though the "young and wealthy" part doesn't apply!

    I might argue differently. I think the difference between EPs and DQs of HPs is that they DO make it past the first water jump, precisely because they have an imported Irish *** horse packing them around Advanced. They also have all the must-haves, including the 14 ft LQ (tastefully appointed), 2 other imported *** horses incase the packer gets a boo-boo (did I mention that all 3 MUST be in FULL training?). And, yes, they are spotless.

    Let me reiterate that the way other disciplines describe THEIR princesses is not how I define it.
    People respect our princesses and giggle at the others...

    LOTS of eventing princesses in Southern California!
    I gotta admit, I love a lot of the latest "bling" but with my $1 OTTBs I don't think there's any danger of my become an EP!

    Well, duh. That would be Zara Phillips, no? (almost? sort of? I don't know how those things go from generation to generation).

    Otherwise, I don't think it's possible, in the tradition of DQs and HPs. I mean, eventers actually have to do some of the work themselves...

    Actually I think Zara really is in line for the throne. She is such a great rider and I totally idolize her.

    Ooo, yes, Zara!
    She's been pampered with great horses and great instruction all her life. While eventing itself is difficult and you don't reach her level of wins without some good riding, she does quite a bit more pr than getting down and dirty with the horses.
    And I think the prerequisite is that we all are a little jealous of the EP's lifestyle and how much they get away with.
    I just hope we don't get crotch shots when they get off their horses! Eeewwww!
    I don't think 'Princess' is the right word though. Diva? Starlet? Broad? Upper-Cruster?

    DC is not spoiled or anything though.
    BUT, staying so darned clean and shiny all day ... Heck she doesn't spill a drop of her scotch on her clothes.

    My post was suppose to be a joke. I thought the thread was a joke.
    Apparently not.

    You don't have to be spoiled to be a princess... perhaps ED is a better term? Eventing Diva?
