Although many students are involved in a sport, not many students at Cabell Midland are involved in eventing. Skylar Davis, junior, along with her horse Preston, compete in eventing which involves jumping, dressage, and cross country courses.

Eventing is one form of competitions that people who ride horses can embark on. The shows usually span over a couple days.

“Eventing is a series of dressage, cross-country and show jumping,” says junior Skylar Davis

She has been riding horses since she was nine and has improved significantly over the years. When first starting out she has switched barn and she credits that to her achievements.

“I started off going to small shows, but as I got more involved in the sport I have moved up multiple levels and now attend large shows and camp in Lexington pretty often,” says Davis.

Skylar travels to Lexington almost weekly in the spring and summer to show and train. While she is there we will work on all three fields of competition.

“I love my barn and trainer here, but training in Lexington with top trainers has been one of the most significant ways I have improved my riding.”

Skylar plans to continue riding and competing with her horse for all of the foreseeable future.
