    Default Survived my first ST

    Horsie and I crossed over to the Dark Side this weekend-- we entered the Starter Trial at Fair Hill. I was nervous as all get-out, especially because of the sloppy footing thanks to all the rain, but we ended up having a GREAT day, a very good (for us) dressage test and double clears on SJ and XC.

    I just wanted to say, though, I was SOOO impressed with all the friendly people we encountered on Saturday! The FH staff were wonderful, fellow competitors were great, and it was just SUCH a laid-back and welcoming environment overall. Super duper awesomely fun day... You eventing peeps ROCK!

    That's great! I left hunterland a year ago and haven't looked back. Did my first uber-mini HT in May and had an absolute blast.

    Half my family came out, so I'm sure they got pics; I just haven't seen them yet. Not sure if I'm brave enough to post them on COTH though!

    I can understand the braveness part, but I think it's tons of fun seeing riders and horses learning the sport. Goodness knows not many of my photos are good, though all the photos of my trainer on my horse are!
