Having competitions take part in the challenge is truly appreciated. With busy lives and schedules, having these shows to help with our goals is important. Goals help me keep on track with training and on days when I am swamped, they help me to push on because they are on my calendar. The shows leading up to the main event keep us moving forward to the main goal of the 3-day and they help with fitness and prepare our horses mentally for the bigger competition.
I love every aspect of the 3-day, the training and time involved with our horses to prepare are fulfilling and to see all the pieces fall together on the 3-day weekend is extremely rewarding.
