Just wondering how its going

I heard it was super rainy and muddy and that some people left early.

We almost went, but I'm really glad we didn't! Of all grounds to be on when there's a huge storm overnight, that is NOT one of them! It floods way too easily, IMO.

Comfortably Numb

I was there yesterday, thought the turnout was not as good as other years. Very few of the racetrack barns had horses in them.

Show is going well- it is not rainy or muddy. The rings have been moving along quite well, Richard, Russell and Jacquie are doing a great job keeping things flowing. Many people did seem to pack up and leave tonight, and entries look light for tomorrow, so we shall see. Who else is here?

I bet it's all dried up now! I'd be a perfect day to show!

We where there from Wed. am to 5pm tonight and there was very little rain durning the day ( I was there from 6am to 7pm everyday). Entries did seem light in a bunch of divisions. There were NO short stirrup entries and very few entires in other usually very popular divisions. The footing was great in Hunter ring 2 where we were. Didn't hear any complaints from the jumper ring, or Hunter ring 1 where the rest of our team was. Over all, for my first trip to the show with my daughter I would say we had a blast! I will definatley keep this show in mind for next year. It also helps that my daughter and her horse had an AWESOME week at their first "A" show together. :D
