“I live in the United States and I had some questions about eventing. I am 39 years old and want to get back into it, and I would like to ride overseas. I was just wondering if you had a few tips of advice. Thank you.”

Oliver answers: It is quite a hard question to answer. My only advice is to be prepared to work really hard. If you haven’t been riding for a while try and get as many hours in the saddle as possible and also do other fitness training so you are in the best physical shape you can be to start with. This helps with not just riding but also preventing injuries.

Also be prepared for the highs and the lows. As long as you keep working hard the good luck should come eventually as well. I wish you the best of luck with everything and hope it
is a great success.
