    Thanks! We've got tickets to the champagne lunch; haven't seen the wine tasting but I'm sure if it's there we'll find it.

    Do you remember how the seating worked for dressage and sj? Bleachers?...

    mortebella, I was going to say the Isabell doesn't look anything like the Pro, but I've just seen the current ones on Dover's website and they look almost exactly alike to me. Weird. The older ones...

    Some of you folks with plenty of Wintec experience, give me the benefit of your thoughts on this: I've been borrowing a Wintec that's about 5 years old, I think it's an Isabell but doesn't look like...
