Hello everyone, I've been looking to get into the equestrian community here in SL for the longest time, but besides very occasionally being invited by friends on casual rides on trails, I've never been able to find and attend any events, particularly regularly occurring events that focus on things like endurance riding, carriage riding, showmanship and eventing; cross-country, dressage and show jumping. I see equipment, furniture and attire being sold for these events at a few different equestrian sims, but I've never been able to get involved myself. I've joined a few equestrian groups and "riding clubs" which have the most members; I look for groups which regularly post notices about events and meetings, particularly those that have events at a variety of different times and I avoid those that have no prior notices at all. Yet I've never received as much as a single notice from most of these groups, and the ones that do come in are for events that are held at times which make it almost impossible to attend due to my time zone. I've contacted some group members occasionally, but they either tell me to wait for the events to be hosted or say that they're not actually active in the group. Very occasionally I get to spend time with some who either show me around the sim or invite me to go on a casual trail ride with them, but nothing beyond that. I want to get involved in some roleplay and community meetings but there never seems to be any sort of roleplay happening anywhere in the community. I just want to get actively involved in the equestrian community, preferably with focus on English riding; are there any groups which regularly post notices and hold events? The group chat in all the groups I've been in are hardly ever active, even if I start talking in the group chat - is there a group in the equestrian community which has plenty of sustained activity in group chat, like the Drivers of SL group or the Passengers of SL group? Any helpful input would be very much appreciated; - Charlotte Sinclair
