Monday Video Break: Udonna Derby Cross

Ever since Annie first wrote her article about Team Udonna, Eventing Nation has been discussing the incredible story about a grand prix show jumping mare transitioning to eventing and shooting for a CCI3* in less than a year.  Our more conservative readers have looked at the situation as overly-ambitious, and our more adventurous readers seem excited to see how one sport translates to the other. 

Having watched Marilyn Little-Meredith and Udonna several times this spring, I have noticed a lot of improvement but there are still clearly control and relaxation issues that need to get worked out before they move up to advanced.  To put it mildly, the size of the jumps are not backing Udonna off.  Here is video from their Derby Cross ride, and yes, the angled cross-country line is definitely a two.  It was a short two, but definitely a two.

Go eventing.
