Not having done a long format event (yet!) I’ve always admired them, and they remain high up on my bucket list. T3D Endurance Day at Galway Downs was exciting as always. I love seeing the months of preparation pay off as these riders spent nearly an hour in the saddle conquering roads & tracks and steeplechase before finally leaving the box for cross country. Plus, at Galway steeplechase is on a soccer field, and who among us hasn’t daydreamed about galloping across a perfectly manicured piece of land like that?
What I didn’t realize until now is how much work it can be to organize. It’s a bit of a four-ring circus, so thank you to the many events and the USEA that work hard to keep these Classic Series events running!
