'Research' for 2013 Events

With winter well and truly upon us, we are now thinking about the 2013 eventing season ahead... with much excitement!

Allowing for plenty of fitness work to take place from mid-January, we've been looking at the options we have for our first event of 2013 - it is looking like it will be Burgham.

Based in the heart of Northumberland and set not far from the A1, this event holds a multitude of competitions over two weeks throughout the year.

  • 2 x British Events
  • British Showjumping
  • Unaffiliated Dressage
There is something for everyone.

We've used a great free website, Eventing Worldwide, which offers course photos to look at the potential courses we'd like to start on. Sometimes they can be a few seasons/events old, but the complexity of each course is similar.

We've also been watching some YouTube clips of riders wearing hat cams to see how the events rode last year.

Here's a great video we found where we can see what the course has to offer:

We hope to see The Original Hat Cam Company at some events this year and will be able to record Thomas and I in action on the cross country - it's a great way for you to see what we do!

As we work hard to be ready for the season, we'll keep you posted on our activity - we'll also put up a list of potential events that we'd like to do.
