I was really keen to get back out eventing again after such a long siesta. Rio also found it quite exciting and probably needed some of Dave Cameron’s famous stunt riding to make the dressage more appealing. We were rusty as anything and glad to have another run on the weekend.

The challenge to training eventing horses extends beyond simply mastering the three phases, it includes finding enough time to do it! There is so much to work on, dressage, x-country schooling and show-jumping.
