30 Day Blog Challenge: Day 12- The Biggest Horse Show You've Ever Competed In

Day 12- The Biggest Horse Show You've Ever Competed In

In 2007, I competed at the Varsity Equestrian National Championships at Baylor University in Waco, Texas. I had never before, and have never since, competed in anything on a national level. I wasn't some kind of spectacular equitation rider; my team was new and lacked many experienced over fences riders. Since I had lots of experience and could ride any horse that was bound to be at the competition, I was selected to go. I had a mediocre round (as I usually do in the hunter ring) and didn't win my matchup.

For sheer number of competitors, the biggest competition I've entered is the Midsouth Regional Pony Club Rally, held at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky. There were always hundreds of competitors; it's a miracle everyone managed to ride in three days.

How about y'all? How do you define your "biggest" horse show?

I did an IHSA Invitational Show in Michigan, and totally botched it up :) Waco is where we show for some of our rated shows here!
