Dein Digs Deep For The Win at Rebecca Farm

Lucid Opposition and Caroline win at Rebecca Farm
One of the most important concepts in competition is to keep competing until the end. It sounds simple, but when you are faced with less than perfect conditions, or an unforeseen adversity, it is not always easy to keep your head in the game. It is especially difficult in our sport of Eventing that spans over three days and three different disciplines, where so many things can go wrong.

Caroline Dein learned this valuable lesson at Rebecca Farm. After a very nice Dressage test, she received a disappointing score that landed her in 17th place. This can easily ruin any body's weekend just as it is beginning, and keep you from doing your best. But she kept her mind focused on the task at hand and continued on with a determined attitude.

The Event at Rebecca Farm is notorious for its difficult cross country courses for all levels, and this year did not stray from that reputation. Caroline and Lucy had one of the fastest clear rounds of the day and they shot up to 5th place once cross country was done.

Caroline's focus continued through on Sunday and she produced one of the few clear rounds in what proved to be a very troublesome show jump course. That double clear round was a personal victory for Caroline, as it is something she has long been working towards, but it also catapulted her into the top position of the Young Rider Preliminary division for the win. We couldn't be more proud of her perseverance, performance, and her achievement.
