Nikole and Gena arrived with two horses to the show venue. Mountain Trail might not be the most popular of disciplines, but the girls always had fun with their two mounts. This time around Gena offered Nikole if she would be interested in riding both Lantesh and Toxic Showgirl. It was a bit more demanding and a bit more time consuming than riding just one horse, but it would also be an excellent learning experience. She eagerly accepted this offer as she always wants to learn and wants to ride more horses, but Gena had to say that she was just kidding. Bad sense of humor on that one, eh?
Nikole was scheduled to start with the stallion waaaay after Gena and Toxic. She was thinking about her own course while watching a live stream of the current riders from a selected number of locations where the hosts of Clover Valley Trail placed cameras. It was very fun to see and she kept looking out for Gena, seems they are almost done with their round.
Lantesh was calm and ready to go as always. They started calling out her division and she was already warmed up and waiting with her horse. She gave him a quick pat on the neck and went to "check in" with the steward.
Lantesh was sailing through the course. Is anything really difficult for this equine? His primary discipline of 80 Mile endurance races surely helps with his stamina and boldness over these mountain trail obstacles. They approached a lovely green hill and started trotting down it. At the bottom of the little hill there were a couple of wooden logs as an obstacle. Boy oh boy does Lantesh love poles! And wooden logs!
"Easy now boy!" but the tail was already up and the spotted little stallion was already strutting his stuff.

As calm as you get 'em!
Toxic, currently sitting on rank number five on the Mountain Trail leaderboard, and her rider Gena, were plodding along their Divison Three course. It was pretty cold that day and Gena kind of regretted not taking an additional sweater or a riding jacket. The higher parts of the course got pretty windy on several locations,so the mare was not particularly happy and overwhelminghly thrilled with the weather scheme.
Gena's trusty, calm horse was very grumpy. It just was not Toxic's day. She was going around with her ears pinned and looked around the course a lot. She did not seem to focus properly. Gena already considered pulling out from the competition, but since she was half way done she could either do the same distance to go back, or continue on forward and complete the course.
"This would be sooo much more better if it were spring. Or summer. Or early fall." she though. What, basically any other season than winter?
The mare completed a few easier obstacles at the top of the hill and they slowly began their descent. At the bottom of the hill there were a few wooden logs for trotting over. Gena first thought of Lantesh, our other horse in this competition, who was getting ready to start at Division One. She knew him to the last hair on his body and also knew that he will pull his rider Nikole to those logs as strongly as he can.
Gena had to snap out of it because, now, the logs snuck up on her and Toxic! The mare stopped dead in her place and snorted.
"It really is not your day today, eh girl?" she patter her on the neck and looked down from the sides of the horse to check the mare's legs for some reason "Another go at them, shall we?" she nudged her in a circle, and tried again.
