Between the caveats of being at a show that has nearly 500 entries…

… to the perils of trying to negotiate with a 1,200-pound animal who has its own ideas about how to run things…

…the struggle has been plenty real here this weekend at Richland Park Horse Trials.

And judging from these reader-submitted #EventerProblems, it’s just as real in whatever corner of the Eventing Nation you live in as well! Here are a couple dozen more to help you guys feel a little less alone in your pain.

If you missed them: Volumes 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22.
