While some of the best in the world are competing across the pond this weekend — and I’m certainly enjoying following along with those events — I’ve been especially delighting in all the jog photos popping up on social media from the Indiana Eventing Association Training and Novice Three-Day Event.
How fun and awesome is it for the lower-levels to get to enjoy the preparation and prestige of a trot-up? I particularly love this picture of Novice three-day competitors 15-year-old Rachel Dowless and her 14hh Hackney/Shetland, A Little Twist. The pony may be of small stature, but his rider has a huge smile!
