#EventerProblems, Vol. 35: The Weekend That Was

#EventerProblems can happen any day of the week, of course, but they tend to be most concentrated on the weekends. Between events, cross-country schoolings and clinics, weekends are prime time for horses to screw stuff up. Bonus points for doing so in the most creative manner possible. You know, like…

…giving everyone a heart attack during the jog

…prying their own shoe off the morning of a jumper show

…taking that long spot

That face you make when you miss a stride coming into a big oxer… #ohshit #eventerproblems #puglife

…packing issues

…procrastination

…cold weather

…including this guy in your Fair Hill selfie

etc. etc. To all those who aired their weekend grievances, better luck next time. Until then, here are a few zillion more reader-submitted #EventerProblems!

I mean, it has the same general desired effect, but … #eventerproblems #hestootalented #didntthinkthisthrough #ohdorado #OTTB
