Monday Video: Go Eventing in The Netherlands

There’s a couple reasons I love watching event footage from all over. For one, you can always learn be watching another horse and rider pair do their thing. And secondly, I find it really fun to get a peek at landscapes of different areas and countries — it’s like following a travel blog in a way.

Today let’s take a trip to Maarsbergen Horse Trails in The Netherlands courtesy of 19-year-old Danish event rider Astrid Vibe Skovgaard. Astrid and her horse Cici, a 9-year-old Trakehner mare, competed in the CCI1* at this event, which took place this past July, and finished in second place on their dressage score of 29.3.

This video from Astrid includes their performance in all three phases, plus helmet cam from their cross country ride. If you love a foresty cross country course and the feeling of trees whizzing by you, then you’ll love it here!
