Here are the last of the photos I got at the event. These are also from the CIC3* and possibly CCI3* levels, but I’m not entirely sure.

Novice cross-country started shortly after dressage. The best spot to see it was up on spectator hill:

The white tent in the upper left was where the riders started

I ended up walking the path around the hill. It went alongside the course and offered good views of everything.

CC_17All in all it was a fun way to spend a few hours! I’m hoping I’ll get the chance to go back next year, because I’d really like to see some showjumping. 😀

Every year there is a big three-day event at Rebecca Farm in Montana. Even though this is only 30 minutes from home (and just across the highway from my school) I have never been able to go, and I’ve lived here for over 7 years!

However, this year I was finally able to check it out. I showed up right after my class, and figured I’d spend an hour or so before heading home to pack for the live show and work on homework.

I ended up staying for over four hours, hahaha.

It was a gorgeous day, but windy and a bit cold. A lot was going on. I mostly wandered around, taking pictures and trying to stay out of the way. I watched some dressage riders in the warm up rings for a while…

I also got to watch a few dressage tests in the various arenas. There were several going on all at once.

I liked how several of the riders were smiling the whole time! 😀 According to the schedule these were FEI levels and National Horse Trial levels? I’m not sure, it’s a bit confusing to me.

Novice cross-country was next!
