Trading a Productive Friday for #EventingShowcase Live

It was a great day of dressage at the $75,000 Asheville Regional Airport Wellington Eventing Showcase presented by Wellington Equestrian Realty. We saw quite a few competitive scores and it was a thrill to see Allison Springer’s Arthur back in action and in top form.
The live stream was a treat for those of us who can’t be there in person. While Dom and Jimmie Schramm provided color commentary, fans kept the conversation going online. The only problem with having a live stream of a popular eventing competition on a Friday is it becomes difficult to get anything else productive done.
#EventingShowcase: Website, Dressage Ride Times, Live Scores, EN’s CoverageTwitter, EN’s Instagram Live Stream Links: 10:30 a.m. Sat: Show Jumping; 1 p.m. Sat: Cross Country

We kept the live stream running all day in the tack room, pausing to watch as we passed by or making a point to catch our favorite horses and riders between chores. We weren’t the only ones tuning in with purpose!

The music was on point. So much N’SYNC. So much Mariah Carey. So much fourth grade nostalgia!

The weather was on the brisk side, but that didn’t stop some folks from making the trek to experience eventing in Welly World.

The showcase will be back tomorrow morning at 10:30 a.m. with show jumping. And because I know we’re all anxious to see just how the horses will handle galloping through the VIP tent, set your watch for 1:00 p.m. for the cross country finale.

Sure why not, gallop thru the VIP tent and jump off a bank into the stadium for cross country? So cool!!
