If you’ve been considering competing in a USEA Classic long-format competition but you weren’t really sure what to expect, these videos from the recent Waredaca Novice Three-Day will help. Get a first person view of each section of a long-format’s endurance day, a full 40 minutes of riding over three different phases that is the culmination of months of hard work and preparation.
Ride along with George Waters and Sarah Kane’s Thoroughbred mare An American Girl on phases A, B, C and D at Waredaca. You’ll get a feel for the steady pace and scenic views of the countryside on roads and tracks, the speed and thrill of steeplechase, and the adrenaline pumping what-you’ve-been-waiting for conclusion on cross country.
Then go check out the Classic Series webpage, find a three-day near you and start planning your conditioning schedule!
Congrats to George and An American Girl on their perfect day!
