#EventerFailFriday: Come for the Up-Bank, Stay for the Grass

This week’s edition of #EventerFailFriday comes courtesy of Camilla Mortensen, an eventer from Eugene, Oregon. During a recent clinic with Dom Schramm at Meika Decher’s Polestar Farm, the greenbean eventer she was riding mistook an up-bank for an all-you-can-eat grass buffet. An easy mistake to make!

Hey, Zaiden, we’ve all been there. Sounds like a successful first outing overall for this cutie-pants of a horse, an Andalusian cross owned by Janice Mackey. “The sweet little guy, who’s not really jumped, rose to the occasion!” Camilla enthused.

Thanks to Christall Murphy for the video. Look at Zaiden out there learning the cross country ropes:
