Perhaps the best part about the downtime all eventers experience in the winter is the opportunity to look ahead at the upcoming year and plan out goals for the season. Maybe this year your goal is to compete in a long-format USEA Classic Series event!

There is no doubt that most eventers are well-organized and travel to events with most everything they need. But a classic series long format event is a little different. Your preparation will start much earlier with the conditioning that must take place and you will be likely be staying at the venue several days longer than you would for a regular horse trial. Part of the fun of doing a classic series long format event is having the opportunity to 'test' your organization skills and showcase yourself and your horse at your best.
