Is this that colt you brought home from the auction?? HE IS INCREDIBLE OMG

I wouldn’t exactly call him a colt, but yep. That’s the auction boy! Just one big surprise after another with this guy!

Q: what was roads and tracks? how was it executed, scored, etc? I've never heard of that before!

Oh my sweet summer child. 

Back in the day…what 3005 and previous the second day(Cross country) was split into 4 separate phases.

Roads and Tracks

Steeplechase

Roads and Tracks 

Cross country

The roads and tracks was similar to an endurance test. With the penalties being incurred by going over time. Steeplechase was a track with fences. Penalties for going over time, bonus points for being under. Roads and tracks again.

That’s cute

I usually hang out there, but I was told to get some sleep because my nodding off isn’t cute haha

Q: As a jumper, your opinion on eventers!

I hate that dressage has such a high weight. I think the courses now are too long and technical after they took out roads and tracks and made the dressage worth more. The horses just aren’t fit enough, they aren’t as light as they used to be, so course designers have to resort to tricks. Tricks in the footing, tricks in the ground line etc. It leads to these unfit horses getting tripped up. Don’t even get me started on stadium. I don’t think anyone gives two shits about that anymore. It’s all how many poles have I to spare. I can hit 2 and still keep my current spot. 

I love eventing don’t get me wrong.I’ll be glued to my computer for Rolex results. I live in the middle of Eventer heaven. I’m just really disappointed with the elimination of the Classic structure and the way the sport’s gone. I would love to event. It’s the true Thoroughbred sport. I just want it to stay like that please.

Q: Do you have any mixtures that can be good spot removers for Gray horses? Like rubbing alcohol mixed with something?

WOW Green Spot Remover works amazing. Rubbing alcohol will also get stains out too. Rubbing alcohol mixed with quicksilver. I like Listerine on socks too. I have a whole tip guide in my Tips page for gray horses.
