USEA Event College at LRK3DE 2018: Tamra Smith Previews the Head of the Lake

In this lesson from the USEA Virtual Event College, Tamie Smith gives us a preview of the iconic Head of the Lake on the 2018 LRK3DE cross-country course. She shows us the direct route versus the option, explaining the differences and why certain riders may choose one over the other. 

About the USEA Event College

The USEA Event College was created by the USEA and the Professional Horseman’s Council to generate awareness of the sport of eventing. The Event College aims to educate spectators, interested parties and the general public on the goals and function of each phase (dressage, cross-country and show jumping) and the complexity and value of the sport. The Event College also aims to educate young riders, adult amateurs, and all those interested in the sport on horsemanship and different skill sets needed to be involved with eventing. High-profile eventing experts will act as “professors” and host casual, interactive dialogue with “students” of the Event College. Anyone interested in the sport of eventing can be a student, and “tuition” is free!
