Teddy and I competed in our first, sanctioned, three day event. The first day is dressage, the second is day cross-country and the third day is stadium jumping. I was really anxious about the cross-country course. It was 1.9 km course with 18 jumps. The ideal time frame was 5 minutes and 27 seconds. I have never galloped a 2 km course with 18 jumps. We had to go up hills, down dales and through the forest. I thought Teddy would get tired and need to trot to catch his breath. Nope. He refused to slow down when I half-halted. He told me "We are in a race, Mom, let's go!" So he kept a steady, consistent pace and galloped the whole course. We even got a speeding ticket for going too fast! Here are some professional photos from the show!
