National Academy Day 3+2: I Owe It All To Rodney

NACHS

National Academy Championship Horse Show, Murfreesboro, TN, November 1 – 3, 2013.

I was warned that this show is a long haul both mentally and physically, that the weekend would leave me gibbering for longer than usual. Therefore, today is my second day of post-show, pre-written posts.

Way back in the mists of time, I bought Rodney with the aim of showing him at a national championship competition, namely the American Eventing Championships [Back to Eventing: How I Won the Training Level AEC]. If he had been even semi-ridable, I never would have been desperate enough to turn to saddleseat. But he wasn’t and I did. As a result, I ended up at a national championship competition – for saddleseat lesson students.
