Our #GoEventing moment of the week for sure. Eventers are built different, and it seems like those in Area I are their own special breed as well. The Scarlet Apple Horse Trials last weekend at Scarlett Hill Farm had just a bit of a rainout, but that didn’t stop them!

The amount of moisture we’ve been getting across the US this year has been nothing short of baffling. While it may be a bit more commonplace on the East coast, we here in the mountain desert of Utah are seeing green for the first time in many places. For those who haven’t had the opportunity to ride one of our West coast courses, our cross country typically sees dirt tracks in fields of sagebrush, rather than rolling fields of grass. While this spring has been very helpful in filling our jump ponds and watering our tracks, it has also brought some beautiful growth to the in-betweens normally inhabited by only gopher holes, rocks, and tumbleweed. It is sure creating more opportunities for at-home water schooling as well — just head to your nearest driveway rut and find your next water crossing!
