Equestrian FEI Eventing Event Rider Masters 2019

Recommended Posts

4th season of Event Rider Masters starts today ('Event' in this context means 'Eventing', so putting it twice in the title is absolutely unnecessary...)

 

It's the series of short format eventing, where cross-country phase is only 6-7 minutes long, and it is held after show jumping as the final phase... Chatsworth opening stage starts today with dressage, and continues tomorrow with morning jumping and afternoon cross-country.

 

As ever, everything will be broadcasted on their super utban/youthful platform - eventridermasters.tv

Ok... When will I be getting my backpack and baseball cap then? Oh, and where is the Platinum Club membership? :mad:

Some backstory. As you may (or probably not) know, the new season of Event Rider Masters started last weekend. This season however brings something new - ERM fan league, which I immediately joined, because why not? I was scoring dressage tests, building some stacks... And eventually ended up on top of the league leaderboard with 4334 points. Once again Croatia was not available in the nations list, so I just picked the closest nation alphabetically (Costa Rica). :lol:

Only after the competition started I actually found out that some prizes are being handed to top players. As the winner of the Chatsworth stage, I should be getting a backpack and a signed baseball cap. However, I have not heard anything from them just yet... :rofl: Hope it's not all some practical joke. After all, ERM commentators regularly mentioned this fan league, and the prizes. Moreover, they even put my name on screen during the second competition day... Even so, I'm becoming slightly sceptical about all this. :p

 

In any case, ERM league promises a bit more than this. Apparently, the season winner of the fan league will be getting an all-expanses paid trip to Stuttgart German Masters in November...

 

Who knew.... Maybe it DOES pay off to be so into a sport that nobody cares about. :yikes: :roflmao:

So finally I got the mail, from Paul Tapner himself. :d Once he was in my favorite athletes section, today he is the director of Event Rider Masters. :p

My package has arrived. :d It's Wilberry Wonder Pony (charity mascot) signed by Laura Collett (winner of the Chatsworth stage), and another horse figure signed by all podium finishers from Chatsworth. It's not exactly what they advertised, but alright. :p

 

Realistically, at least one of the podium finishers should be in Tokyo next year, so I guess I'll have an Olympian's autograph sooner or later. :d
