Adult Event Camp

It was time to see if I could make an eventer out of Tax.  Took him to an eventing camp to school cross country for the first time.  He was a rockstar.  Turns out my pony can really jump!

We schooled dressage and stadium on Friday and cross country on Saturday including our first attempt at figuring out the pace. 

Sunday we put it all together for a mock competition.  My horse had 0 refusals and even went over the scary stuff we hadn't tried yet.  We even made it pretty close to the optimum time with an amazing gallup at the end. 

We've made so much progress recently.  Amazing what good riding lessons will do for you!  Thanks to Alana Henley of Sunfire Equestrian, Chris and Jordan McNabb of Twin Palms Combined Training and Stacie Campuzano of Freestyle Farms.

Here's the video of our school.  The commentary is pretty funny sometimes:
