Is it coincidence that with the first day of spring and the first week of Daylight Savings that the eventing season finally feels underway? Maybe it’s the first of the Rolex entries being announced, or CIC 3*’s on both coasts completed. I can’t exactly put my finger on it, but all of a sudden it seems to be time for our sport to take center stage. Here on the West Coast we have Copper Meadows running it’s first show of the season, and the East Coast is gearing up for Carolina International. All I know is it’s a wonderful feeling to be able to get a trot set in after 6 pm – though I wouldn’t mind some weather in the 60s for a while before we jump to the upper 70s!
