Ah, spring. The sun is shining, the birds are singing and you’ve got a whole new set of #EventerProblems on your hands. Including but not limited to:

SO, I know I haven’t posted in forever, and I’m sorry! I’ve been having a bit of horse drama and have been super preoccupied with it. I will post tomorrow with all the details of my horse life, but for now, TRACTOR DOWN! This is what happens when you start building your cross country course at home before the ground is dry from winter! #eventer #eventing #eventersofinstagram #eventerproblems #tractor #mud #horse #horsesofinstagram #crosscountry #flagstaff #lessonlearned #springtime #showseason #eventhorse #equestrian #equine
