#EventerProblems Vol. 278: Oh Crab!

Undoubtedly the strangest and most fearsome crustacean ever to appear on a cross country course in history, fence #15A on the inaugural Maryland 5 Star Course has attracted plenty of double-takes. This crab would be giving me nightmares if it was six inches long and dressed with garlic butter on my dinner plate, much less whatever whopper dimensions it actually is.

After horses take the plunge, they’ll shake the water out of their ears and head on to an up bank to a log at 15CD, followed by a brush arrowhead at 15E. You can watch Ian explain this question here, and you can check out EN’s course preview here.

Here are a few of your snaps of this legit #EventerProblem. Five-star cross country begins at 12:20 p.m., moved up from its original 1 p.m. start time, so we’ll get to see how it jumps here shortly! Best of luck to all.
