I had this on yesterday. Much to my dismay, the link is FABULOUS! (The "dismay" comes from th fact that I got no work done).

2) when can I see the A/O jumpers?

3) THANK YOU THANK YOU EQTV for this link!

I was standing at the in-gate when the rider mentioned above fell.. she did walk out and seemed to be ok, as did the horse.

After watching this webcast for years I finally made the trek there yesterday to watch in person.. what a wonderful experience! It was amazing to see such incredible horses, and of course, nom on some great food. I took lots of pics, and I think the highlight of my day was getting to hang by the in-gate to get as close as I could to Touchdown.. that horse is amazing.. and SO sweet! He loved to get rubs from Scott and his grooms, such a cute horse. Scott had another mount in the HP classes, Garfield, who was just as cute and as snuggly. I've always been impressed with Scott as a ride of course, but it was great to see him behind the scenes really enjoying the mounts he had.

screen cast buffers every 5-7 seconds for me, doesn't this defeat the point? =/

horsegal your connection must be slow.. mine has run without a single bobble for two days in a row.

=/ Have a solid wireless connection and plugged in the ethernet cord. It's fine when the camera is still, but I struggled to follow the horse for some reason... getting a little better the more I watch, though.

Which feed are you having a problem viewing the Hunter or Jumper or both?

Try running a speed test on your connection using this link

www.speedtest.net

You need a minimum of 768kbs download speed to watch.

I was watching the hunter ring (and thank you EQTV for the super quality, I so looked forward to watching this year!!!).

The hunter ring is no longer viewable, just buffered and never came back.

I can get the jumper ring just fine.

Anyone else having problems w/the hunter feed??

Is this personal conversation on the Jumper feed making anyone else uncomfortable? I feel like telling them that they are RIGHT next to the camera...but I also feel like listening?

Jun. 9, 2011, 01:01 PM
Me too! And is the hunter ring done for the morning? A message saying when it will be back would be nice, never know when it's a connection issue or if they're taking a break... But thanks so much for this service!

ETA: guess it's a connection issue. Back up, sort of... lots of buffering on my fast connection.

We are having a problem with our upload speed the internet provider is working on resolving the problem. They say we should be back soon.

Our Upload speeds seem to be increasing and the feed is almost back to normal. Roadstar to the rescue.

nothing like having a very private conversation go very public! Maybe they should have spent that $250,000 on a horse instead of on a party? haha

I'm sorry I missed it! :lol:

I just have to keep telling myself that it is wrong to have a feed up while I'm at work. At least there are evening classes!

Oh yeah THANK YOU to Norden for sponsoring it :)

I have lost both feeds, hoping the hunter ring comes back for the late in the day eq stuff!!

Mine died as well, as they were doing the drag before the Eq classes. The announcer was talking about approaching bad weather, so I assumed there was a weather-related connection issue.

Just started watching but nothing there. Since you said it could be bad weather and other feeds died, can someone post back when they see something so I know if it's my computer?

Kitty
Jun. 9, 2011, 08:02 PM
Yes thanks for a wonderful webcast! It's great to be able to see both rings and to hear the announcers as well. The Welcome Class today was fantastic!! So looking forward to the Sunday GP!! THanks again!!

Anyone know if it only works in the US?

Curious, have they run the older Children's Hunters? They just finished the youngers and on the schedule the olders went next, but the announcer said they were done all performance classes. Did they hold them together and I just didn't notice or were they moved to another ring?
