View Full Version : Galway FEI divisions: D & SJ both on Friday?

Mar. 28, 2011, 05:39 PM
Just saw the USEA article about Galway this weekend, and it noted that the FEI divisions will have dressage and show-jumping on Friday, and XC on Saturday.

I know this schedule is normal now for lower-level events but am curious about why it would be used at FEI levels. Anyone have some insight?

Not sure, but I think they schedule it like this because:

* They can run cross-country in reverse order of standing

* They can present awards at the competitor party on Saturday night

In Europe, CICs are run in one day.
So, to make it more like Europe/to draw more crowds (I think) Robert is running it as a 2 day for the CICs.
