Sydney Eventing World Cup Qualifier

So, thanks to wonderful Kylie who gave us some tickets, the family and I went off to SIEC (Sydney International Eventing Centre which is off Wallgrove road out the back of Fairfield) on Sunday. It was the Sydney leg of the qualifiers for the World Cup in Eventing, so there was Showjumping (above), cross country and dressage (which we missed).

The photo I took on my mobile so I'm sorry its crap and I promise to post up some decent ones when I find them. The kids were great, well except for when Miss Three shrieked unexpectedly and it could be related or not, but at that exact moment the girl in the ring fell off. We left then. Quite hurridly. Just in case.

Had been thinking it was about time I flung leg over horse, and seeing all those beautiful horses has cinched it. I may (or may not) be astride a horse by the end of the week. My arse hurts just thinking about it.

lol... I remember the last time I rode a horse, my parents propery. The horse was named.... get this.. lol.. Suzanne... they thought she had spirt and was full of life.

She sure was, scared the life out of me she did. She took off and wow I had a job to control her. When I got back I settled for the lovely Sabrina... slow.. sure footed and serene.

It was an experience I'll never forget. lol..
