Quote 4the day: Each horse has its own path and destiny just as we do. Go with the flow and be with them while you can on this side as well as the other side when you meet again..
Fact 4the day: Eventing (also known as horse trials) is an equestrian event where a single horse and rider combination compete against other combinations across the three disciplines of dressage, cross-country, and show jumping. This event has its roots in a comprehensive cavalry test requiring mastery of several types of riding. The competition may be run as a one-day event (ODE), where all three... events are completed in one day (dressage, followed by show jumping and then cross country) or a three-day event (3DE), which is more commonly now run over four days, with dressage on the first two days followed by cross country the next day and then show jumping in reverse order on the final day. Eventing was previously known as Combined Training, and the name persists in many smaller organizations. The term "Combined Training" is sometimes confused with the term "Combined Test" which refers to a combination of just two of the phases, most commonly dressage and show jumping.
Thought 4the day: Sometimes in life things don't go to plan. Have you ever thought or noticed its when your in a rush or apprehensive (nervous) that things really go pear shaped. Horses feed off of our vibes and can look at us for direction. An examle is jumping when we look at the fence instead of over the fence some horses that are not as bold as others will feel the lean in that direction and it can cause them to stop! I was also told once that if you keep looking at the floor you end up on the floor. This i know is true. Remember keep your head held high and so will your four legged friend..
