Yvonne Lucas Training Session Contest

Advanced-level eventer Yvonne Lucas has generously donated a 3-day mini-camp for T3D aspirants (either '09 or '10). This includes: 3-4 night's board for their horse at Yvonne's Red Moon Farm, and one lesson a day: (day 1) dressage, (day 2) stadium, and (day 3) cross-country/ galloping/ steeplechase (off-site). In addition, you'll be discussing theory, riding strategy, conditioning, calculating minute markers, riding roads & tracks, horse care, etc.

Yvonne will provide stall/straw bedding/turnout. Winner would be responsible for hauling the horse, hay and grain, and their own accommodations, etc. Winner would have the possibility of riding other horses at my farm in addition to their own at no additional cost.

Now the important part: How do YOU win?!?

Send in a short (500 words or less) essay describing why the T3D is an important goal for you and why training with Yvonne for 3 days will help you achieve your goal.
