I’m here at the Waredaca Classic Three Day Event, which began this morning with the jogs for the Novice and Training Three Day. With twenty horse and rider pairs in the T3D and twenty-four in the N3D, it’s a full house here for the twelfth annual Waredaca Event, a favorite for young riders, amateurs, and young horses alike.
As for many riders this was the first formal jog inspection, there was a demonstration and instructions prior to meeting the ground jury. One of the many amazing things about the Waredaca Three Day is that the weekend is filled with educational opportunities to ensure that each and every competitor has the best chance possible to succeed over all three days. Before I go further into the activities here in Maryland, we need to attend to the Unofficial Jog Awards!
Lauded as the most important part of the event, and the only part where we horse people look like normal people, jogs are a great time to show off your style and your grooming skills. Without any further ado….
