As a first-time competitor of a classic 3-Day format, I must admit that I was overwhelmed with information! Everything from conditioning, to show scheduling, and organization in general seemed like a daunting task. The Road to the 3-Day helped tremendously by outlining a show schedule that I knew would set me on a successful path to the Waredaca Classic 3-Day. Additionally, the Road to the 3-Day enters its competitors into a chance to win entries to the participating events in the year that follows the Classic 3-Day, holding a very good value; so many entries I don’t have to worry about paying next year! However, I have found that the long-format event and eventing in general are more than just about the ribbons and prizes. By participating in the events leading up to the Three Day, I found that I began seeing familiar faces both inside and outside of the arena. By fostering these new relationships, the experience became more relaxed and even more enjoyable. Between the chances of earning great prizes, meeting fantastic people, and everything in between, I couldn’t recommend the Waredaca Classic 3-Day and the Road to the 3-Day Challenge enough!
