I knew horses ran a steeplechase, but had no idea high school track had the event too! Coach chose the twins to run in this event at Saturday's Kiwanis Invite down in Hermiston, Oregon.
He said he chose them because they are resilient. DH said he thought the more appropriate word is "expendable"!
This event is 3000 meters - seven times around the track with four obstacles, including this pond.
The weather cooperated with us for the meet, but Easter Sunday was not quite as nice as the wind showed up again. The wind has been almost a constant this spring. Seems like 18 mph with 25-30 gusts being about average. When will we get a full week of nice weather??
