Thanks for the link, I just had surgery yesterday so have lots of time (and the excuse!) to sit around and watch this :D Better than anything on TV!

I watched the showjumping at the end of the day yesterday.
That was one scary ass class.
A couple of them looked like they took their horses straight out of the barrel racing class and were barreling around that course.
Waaay braver than I, I guess.

I admit I was a bit disappointed too. And I have an Arab jumper. I'm very sad that the horses presented appeared somewhat over fenced and somewhat under trained. I realize it wasn't a very deep class (only 4! in the purebreds) but I did expect to see horses that would have been above the level of my jumper. Horses I wouldn't have minded losing to had we made the long trek to Idaho I mean.

Jumpers did not have to qualify to enter, many arab shows don't fill jumper classes to get points so that is a big reason. I also think the location and the economy are a big reason other jumpers did not enter.
