View Full Version : New Combined Test Offering, need a name

Dec. 17, 2009, 07:06 PM
We host an unrecognized horse trial each summer at our
stable and I am preparing the show announcement for
next summer's show now. I am adding a new class to
the eventing choices. We currently offer three levels
of horse trial, Novice, Beginner Novice and a lower
level we call Introductory (18" jumps and walk-trot
dressage). These are normal horse trials with a dressage
phase, a cross country phase and a stadium phase.

The new offering will be a combined test wherein the
competitor gets to choose whichever two phases they
want to ride at any of the three levels we offer. They
can do the two phases at the same level or different ones.
I need a name for this offering and the ones I have thought
of so far are not very creative. My list so far is:
Rider's Choice Combined Test
Pick a Pair Combined Test
Mix N Match Combined Test

Any better names you can suggest for this?

Robin, our hunt club does a very similar thing and Cindy who is Firefox on here calls it a Mix And Match and everyone understands that means you can mix up your disciplines as you wish.

a similar one around here was called Choose your Own Adventure. :)

Great idea - thanks for putting it on, and hope it goes well!
