Fair Hill Fun
|Look who we found!|
It was a cold, blustery day but we had a ton of fun! We arrived just in time for the start of the 3*, and got to watch several riders go through each part of the course. It just amazes me how EASY they made it look. I mean, check out Phillip Dutton cruising through the first water complex:
Each of those elements pretty much gives me a heart attack on its own, nevermind strung together like that through the water! These riders have some serious skill and way more guts than I can ever hope to have. After watching the 3*, and seeing several jumps in the 2* course, I am resolute in never, EVER wanting to make it to the upper levels! Beginner Novice is just fine for me, thanks!
|Yeah, that's a big fat NOPE.|
Horses, friends, free fried chicken, snacks, and beer?! COUNT ME IN! We grabbed plates full of goodies and settled in to watch a few riders gallop through. This was definitely one of the highlights of the afternoon! As well as this rather enjoyable moment:
|Yes, we are 10 years old at heart.|
