    Can't tell from the video...is that a Voltaire Palm Beach? If it is and it's from 2014 it will likely be a tree problem. They tried using a different tree during 2014 which obviously didn't work out...

    I don't like the idea of jumper mileage not counting for the pre-green...MAYBE that would be a good idea for the 1st year and 2nd year green divisions? But not the 3' pre-greens IMO

    Amateurs do this for fun. I do this for fun. If competing 3'6 isn't fun but doing a lower height is, then show in the lower height! If you enjoy jumping 3'6, then jump in the 3'6 section. Regardless...

    I would use a gag with two reins. If the horse is really well schooling on the flat I would prefer to have a snaffle rein and then only engage the extra leverage/breaks when needed. Hopefully that...
