This was by FAR the easiest beginner novice course we've done tho. Obvi we don't have much depth of experience... but you'll see what I mean once all the xc pics are edited and ready to post. It would have been the perfect move-up course from intro, rather than the trial by fire that was Loch Moy...

All the same tho - I was whooping and squealing like a child when I crossed that xc finish line (and YES that IS on video lol), and feel quite satisfied with the outing. Isabel was a champ and ate up the swampy oozy icky footing like the trail queen that she is.
|horse is so quiet at the trailer - you can see the little mud spot she wore into the ground from stomping at flies, demarcating just how still she stood for so long...|
Plus - as a major bonus - a lesson student from our farm showed up with her mom just in time for stadium + cross country so I actually have some media of us *riding* !!! Stay tuned :)
