Hi - Will post photo galleries/press releases by tomorrow morning (just got back from Lexington, actually). Tons of gorgeous horses and really neat people... good day had by all, I should say! Big big big thanks to Brian & Penny Ross for hosting this, and also Carter Bass and Susan Graham White for judging (and all the fabulous volunteers, too) - it was pretty much the perfect scenario! What a fun end to a great season for the FEH series.

Looking forward to the photos...

My filly had a good time, from what I hear. She gave lots of hugs, snuffled small children and napped in her stall. Such is the life of a 3 year-old TB.

As expected, she didn't score well. But she was calm and quiet amid all the activity and, thanks to Glenbaer, is very well-prepared to start her eventing career.

Nice to see the scores broken down by their categories .... but what about the breeding???? Isn't that part of what this is about? Breeding for prospects? Oh the poor forlorned breeders :cry: Where do people think these magnificent creatures come from? under rocks, or cabbages?

So just how does one get eliminated in this type of class?

The elimination was caused by what the judges saw as a mild unsoundness. Very unfortunate, as he was drop dead gorgeous (and personality-sweet as pie!). Really, really nice yearling. Actually, there wasn't one there that was not nice, the competition was stiff IMO.

What I am wondering is how the scoring worked. The the 1st place horse in the 2 yo geldings class had the highest score of all the 2 yo's, yet was not Champion of the age group. The 2nd place gelding somehow became Grand Champion, and the 1st place filly, who's score was also lower than his, was reserve. Were there previous scores to factor in?

And the 3 year-old Champion and FEH Grand Champion had a lower score than the 3 year-old Reserve/FEH Reserve Champion.

Does that translate to: 'that one scored higher but we like this one better anyway'?

First and second place for each sex of an age group come back for championship, judged again but no score given, just placed

Yes, but lots of times I think it's hard to compare scores of yearlings vs scores of 3YO, but if you get them all there, you can say, well for a yearling this one really is x so we'll place it higher

It's more subjective

What about the scores of 0? Should those have both been E's?

Once results are posted on the USEA website they have the breeding listed. They also announced it for each horse at the show

On the score sheet under yearlings(gelding/colt) #448 was put in the wrong class- he was a 2yr old, and did have a 3rd place in that class.

#427 was the horse who was not given a score due to the slight unsoundness.

Hope this clarifies a little
