    Thanks for the kind words. Baxter is so "basic black" that quarter marks are a bit of a must-have.

    Ooooh, very impressive with the colored stocks. After all this, we will expect photos of you!!

    "...they are holding a 2 3/4 phase next month..."

    What is a 2 3/4 phase? What 1/4 of a 3-phase is missing? Never heard of this particular competition!

    They call it a 3/4 bc the XC course isn't full length. Sometimes it's shorter, but this year the pre-entry (2'6) equivalent is 1390m, so pretty comparable to other local events. They use parts of the Grand Prix field, the track, thru other riding rings, a small designated XC area, then back on the track and thru the field.

    It's only a $45 entry, so hard to complain!

    Well here is the update... My star pony and I LOVED it and proved it with the win!! Couldn't be prouder of her (and a little of myself).
    We decided to actually canter the x country course because she was totally manageable and quite honestly, it was way too much fun not to haha. The fences were no where near the size I've been schooling which was good and bad. I was worried that the respect would be lost, but it worked out and gave us the confidence we needed. I'm hoping that we don't get cocky next time...that's right you read next time
    I can't wait to try this again! The whole experience was amazing. The people were awesome and it was a blast!
    Thanks everyone for the encouragement in the beginning, we may have created a x country monster lol

    Huge congratulations for getting out there and doing it (with lots of good prep beforehand), and also for the WIN! Yay for you and pony!

    Congrats! Wonderful to hear you had a great time and hope that you stick with it. I am glad you guys won as well, icing on the cake.

    If I could figure out how to attach pictures I would!
    Maybe normandy_shores can post some for me plus she has some great ones of her and her mega cutie (who I have fallen in love with)!

    Default Here come the pictures!

    Per pacificprima's request -- I have some photos

    Moo and I also won our division (a first for us!). This event was really well done, especially for the ridiculously affordable entry. What a great experience! The facility, management, course... all of it


    Here is the whole album, if that is easier to flip through:

    We match!

    Might as well rock in Stadium too, right Moo?

    I've known Pacificprima a few years now, but somehow had never seen her mare going -- what a stunner! I wish my photographer friend (All photo credits to Jen Lockhart!) had been able to come the day prior and get pacificprima's dressage photos -- wowza! And Moo was as easy as ever, I honestly think a monkey could steer him around a course.

    Oh and baxtersmom we decided on the navy windowpane with the peach stock. Hard to see it, I'll see if the parental units were able to capture it

    You ladies did great! =)

    I tried to catch a peek at your rounds but my gelding had other ideas. Apparently it was the perfect opportunity to showcase our spook-buck-fart-stop to everyone in the warmup ring.

    Any plans on going to the Mrs T event at MREC in July? Hopefully we'll be better behaved at that one.

    Congratulations to both of you!

    I had forgotten that red and blue are reversed for 1st and 2nd place in the UK, thus your winning 1st place, red ribbons.

    Good luck at your next event. I am happy that you had such a good time eventing. It is quite addictive.
    When in Doubt, let your horse do the Thinking!

    Auburn: think north not east, but, yes red for 1st, blue for 2nd, white for 3rd and yellow for 4th, green=5th and pink=6th

    To my fellow BC'ers Congratulations!!! Wish I could have partaken, but the ferry fee made it cost-prohibitive , so we only go to full 3-phases
