Nissan Easter Festival

Two weekends ago was my first time riding at Easter Fest, arguably the biggest show I’ve competed in (Horse of the Year may be bigger; YDHS more elite).

Sunlands Training Show

Here are some numbers for this show: 8 horses. 1 four-berth. 1 two-berth. 4 trips; one for the two-berth, three for the four-berth. 6 saddles. Nowhere near enough girths. No dedicated horse-holders.

First […]

SANESA Q1
