There’s so much eventing madness going on this weekend, it’s truly insane! While I won’t be at a USEA event this weekend, I’ll be trucking my pony to the annual Groton House Farm 2-phase. I always look forward to this competition; not only is it a well-run show on beautiful grounds, but it’s a great way to test the skills I’ve been working on all winter and see how they fare in the ring.
