I am a fluffy rider with some physical challenges to riding. I fox hunt my draft crosses. I wanted to find something new to do with my horses. Something where my weight and the size of my horses wouldn’t matter. Somewhere supportive, somewhere I could belong.
I signed up for a TREC-USA clinic held at Sport of Horses Park. My A team gelding had popped an abscess, so I loaded up my B team mare and away we went. Pulling up at the venue, I was greeted by smiling faces and before I could fret, I was registered, tacked and seated with a group, maps before me, compass in hand. I felt so comfortable, the instructors were knowledgeable, there were riders of varying levels of TREC experience. An hour later, with the rudiments of Orienteering on horseback, the mare and I were out to practice TREC obstacles.
