As I stared down at the stall assignments for this weekend’s show (and subsequently tried to track down a map of the Kentucky Horse Park), I realized that I have never actually done an overnight event. In Area II, practically everything (at least below Prelim) is one day, so we would trailer there and back in one day. (despite events being 2.5 hours – 3 hours away).
I did some away shows as a junior in the welsh pony/cob world, but that was a different beast altogether.
So tell me people, what advice to you give a first-time over nighter?
