My little stock horse and I are going to have our first crack at a one day event this year. BUT I have never done anything like this before, so what do I need to know, and what do I need to have? I have an all purpose saddle (it is a bit small but I can fit into it!) I only have a bright purple PVC hanovarian bridle, and I don't have an english style saddle pad. So I will need a new saddle pad, and a new leather bridle, but do I need a body protector or anything else like that? Which would be a good event to start with, a pony club event or an EA event? Also my partner is considering tagging along with his one eyed steed. Would he be able to compete as well?
