About two years ago I had just moved my mare to a new barn and started with a new trainer. The mare I was riding at the time really needed to go back to the basics and I was doing a lot of groundwork and flatwork on her. As an eventer, I obviously have a love for jumping and was missing my fix of flying. The barn owner was walking through one of the pastures with me and we were talking about our love of eventing and working with horses. She pointed over to a fat chestnut pony that was in one of the paddocks and said, "he needs a job, and none of my school kids can ride him. I think he would be a pretty cool event pony." That was enough to spark my interest.
