Hello, my name is Emily Worth and today I am writing to tell you about my experience with the long format three-day event. I live in Selma, North Carolina, and am 15 years old. Three years ago, in 2015, I competed in an assisted Beginner Novice division, and while I was there I got to see the long format being run. It looked like a lot of fun and seemed like an amazing opportunity. For the next two years, it became one of my long-term goals to compete in one. I was having trouble with my horse at our level, so unfortunately, that dream got pushed back for a little while.
