2000 Adelaide – Flying Doctor

FlyingDoctor250‘Doc’ was purchased for $1200 as an 11-year-old Pony Club horse that had never evented.  I fell off him when I tried him, but he did not run away so we bought him.  A couple of years later he gave me my first taste of eventing at the four-star level. Looking back on it, I had no idea what I was doing.  I did not even understand measuring stride distances between jumps on the course walk.  I demolished a fence on steeplechase, but hung on and had a great cross-country…….with only 1 rail down in show jumping, I was hooked!
