Amateurs Like Us: Karen Webb Started Eventing Late In Life, But She Wakes Up Early For It

Karen Webb describes herself as a “full time working stiff,” and like many others, she somehow makes time to compete, raise a family and keep her horses at home.

While her grueling schedule must be planned to the minute, it’s all worth it when she goes through the finish flags on cross-country with her young horse, Joey, or when she watches her 10-year-old daughter cantering around a jumping course with a big smile.

Samantha Majors is used to drawing a crowd as she walks Buckeye to the warm-up arena from the stables at a dressage show, and it’s not just because he’s an Appaloosa—her mount is also a mule.

“Whether you’re hacking or getting ready to show, people will do a double-take,” said Majors. “Then you get the people who want to give you the silly comments, ‘Oh, nice warmblood you have there.’ Sometimes it can take a bit of time to get where you need to go because everybody wants to stop and look at him and take pictures.”
