    Default Prelim helmet cam from Poplar

    My daughter and her OTTB ran their first prelim event at Poplar Place Farm this past weekend. They not only completed the event but came home with a fifth place ribbon. I am so very proud of them, it was a hilly and challenging course unlike what we have up here in area 8 but despite that they came in right at optimum time double clear.

    We have only had this guy for under 2 years and still working on getting him to relax for dressage and show jumping but dang I am nothing but impressed with his guy (we purchased him from LAZ back in 2/2011).

    Thanks for looking and sharing in my excitement!

    Congrats! So neat, I love watching those.

    The first time she looked down to check her watch I thought "omg she's falling!"

    How exciting! Super nice ride, very accurate through some big fences and combos with some spooky shadows also. Well done.

    I've never been to Poplar but it looks beautiful.

    That was great! I was at Poplar grooming for a friend in the 2* and I'm almost positive we saw your daughter go up the bounce banks when we were walking the course. They looked great! I love hearing the riders talk to their horses on the helmet cams!

    Thanks everyone, I do so love being able to ride along with them via the helmet cam. I get a kick out of the things she says to him on course. She was nervous and honestly it was the first time I was too, we just dont have courses like that up here. Completing that course was a huge confidence builder and made the 9 hr drive down to poplar worth every minute. He is such a brave boy!

    Fabulous! I don't know if I will ever actually RIDE a Prelim, so to do it vicariously is the only way I can. Congrats to your daughter, she was great!
