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. However, I wasn’t giving up, just postponing.

Simone Tranfaglia and Theresa Simmons were among the riders that made the two-day trip from Petaluma, California with trainer David Adamo to compete at the 2018 Event at Rebecca Farm. Seventeen-year-old Simone had been working hard for over a year to prepare to compete in her first ever USEA Classic Series Event, the Rebecca Farm Training Three-Day, with Maggie Bronson’s 21-year-old Westphalian gelding Finnegan’s Wake (Abdullah x Seren). Theresa Simmons, who recently retired from working with the California Highway Patrol’s K9 Unit, was planning to compete aboard her own Fred (Cicero’s Ice Water x Winnies Tash xx), a 9-year-old Holsteiner gelding, who she has been competing at the Novice level for the last year.

Fire and ice, or in this case ice boots, ice packs, lasers, and magnetic blankets can be seen in the corners of barn aisles, in tack stalls at events, and on fit horses after cross-country. Whether it’s galloping over steeplechase, navigating through roads and tracks, or show jumping on the final day, the United States Eventing Association (USEA) Classic Series Events involves an elevated level of horse fitness to tackle Endurance Day.
