    Default River Glen Training helmet cam

    River Glen is in the hills of Northeastern Tennessee, a private farm located in a hilly, picturesque glen by a very pretty river. This was a good, early season, softer training course. Nice to get the first show out of the way. I was so nervous I forgot to hook up my air vest or start my watch. I did have the fastest XC time in my division! Enjoyhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H2Kqm...ature=youtu.be

    Yay!!
    Now I'm just a little confused....I didn't see ANY rain coats nor umbrellas. The starters were just sitting out in the POURING RAIN with NO cover. I can't believe you actually RODE in that weather......;-)

    Glad you went? I am. Good job!!

    We got lucky, I think There were some moments when the sky turned absolutely black and I thought we were in for it finally, but then it all just dissipated.

    It was indeed a wee bit chilly, but great for XC day!

    PS great video! That was a fun course to ride.

    Thanks for letting me ride along. What a beautiful place. Glad you had a good first event.

    Also I love the black tipped ears

    What a great ride you had! I love River Glen...it's a beautiful location, great owners (last time I was there, I found out that I went to grad school where the owner got his bachelor's!). But, I've never been warm there...it's always been cold and even rainy!

    Glad the rain held off for you guys...looks like a good time was had by all! Yay!

    So fun! You did such a great job managing the terrain and that switchback at the end (no fair always making it look so easy )

    I wore mine at Longleaf this weekend and didn't get the darn thing turned on .

    Isn't it nice brushing off the winter cobwebs?

    Fun!! Every time I see a helmet cam video of a XC outing it makes me want to start eventing again.
    I like that you talk to him throughout

    Jaycee and you are great together. What a team!

    I have never gone to River Glen, but seeing your video cam makes me want to go next Fall.

    I can see why you had the fastest time. You guys looked like you were running Intermediate speed in the beginning. By the end, he had moved down to Training speed. I love all of your "Good boy!" pats during your ride, too. Great job.

    Are you going to MayDaze or Indiana?

    Yes, Maydaze! I fell off there last year. I hope to improve on that this year. See you there?

    Great fun! Thanks for posting.

    I like the low voice and calmness you use when praising your horse.
