    Just an observation from watching the HT at Ocala this last weekend; the Open & higher divisions ran in traditional order but the lower "Rider" ones ran Stadium then XC with several not making it to...

    Several events in Area IV have always run in the traditional format with stadium for all divisions on Sunday (and working down from Prelim to make the course setting easier). They have worked up...

    Ajierene,
    Having had to plow through the results for both Associates and an Area, I don't believe that once every four years would provide sufficient opportunities for the average eventer to attend...

    A similar argument (only time when everyone is back in form) was used to set the current date for the AECs but mid-September really messes up the Fall calendar and takes 3 weekends away from the...

    There's also a thriving eventing scene in Quebec with schooling shows as well as their Recognized HTs - all close to the US border and easily accessible via the 1000 Islands Bridge and the 401 on the...

    Kaybee,
    I doubt any existing event could expand sufficiently to cover the numbers - and levels up to Advanced - of the AECs. In the past, perhaps the Wayne venue (which held both Flutie's Maui Jim...

    Another factor that will count against a lot of venues is the lack of sufficient close & affordable accommodations. Several possible sites fail that requirement. I wonder if there would be more...

    Given past worries about speed, why has the limit for speed penalties been pushed up to Prelim for all divisions rather than the next division up? - especially if that division's speed has increased...

    If you're talking about both types of show at the same venue - my answer would be "not a lot" - in fact, from my experience, the L Grads will be more consistent than some of the older (in terms of...

    Locally here in the Mid-West the "secondary" judges are usually USEF small "r" dressage at the recognized events and L Graduates at unrecognized shows. Off hand I don't know any organizer who uses...
