So unprepared!!
« on: April 27, 2016, 03:23:00 AM »

I have my first show on Saturday and I'm quite literally not prepared at all. I've only got half a clip done, no show outfit (it's in the mail) and I've not even done any ground work/training.

Also it's snowing a bit this week! It's all a disaster!

Must be the month for it .............. I was supposed to go in my first event earlier this month. I had wanted to do eventing since i was a little kid. I was all ready to rock and roll and at the last minute tore the ligament in my pelvis. I feel like im living at the physio at the moment.

One good thing that has come out of this was that about 3 months ago , I was contacted on FB by a lady who tought me to ride when I was 5 ( Im now 36) I remembered her straight away but after my parent split when I was around 8 , we lost contact.... So to get a message after all these years and too catch up has been unreal :)  Her daughter is a high level eventer here. Funny thing is when She taught me to ride , she had no children. She now has three at ages 28,25,18.  We had been riding alot until the ligament injury.

So I had been training on her mare, even took myself over the first jumps in 25 years.

Im more determined than ever to get to my first event , Sorry for rambling , just dont let this deter you Rocklone , youll get there , and we will need to see Pictures and to hear all about it :)

Wow, Ryan!!

That's fabulous being able to be in touch again with such a wonderful "memory" in person!  I did lots of riding and eventing when I was MUCH younger -- wouldn't dare do it now!

Keep your determination!  You'll do some wonderful things, as I really think we do better as we age a bit, and understand how important practice and form are.  As youngsters it's more about the fun!

You'll have to send us some pictures.  Do you have large horses as well?  If so -- let us see!!!!

And yes, We're going to have to hear about that show, Rocklone!  I can't wait!
