    I have read this entire thread and still have no idea what the problem is that you are trying to solve. OT is set by measuring the course dividing that distance by the pace for the level. This idea...

    This course seems like a standard-issue CMP design, IMO.

    But regarding it not being "classic," and the 1950s video referenced above, I do sometimes watch old XC footage (Bromont Olympics, World...

    Respectfully, you are wrong about two important points. First, Lee Pearson, or any paraequestrian, IS allowed to compete above his classification level. Second, the classification rules are very...

    Hawley and Ginny do everything spectacularly, whether for good or bad, it seems. They either tear up the course (usually, with amazing vigor!) or get eliminated (I think Hawley's gone to the hospital...

    Both he and Reggie have had fitness issues at the 4* level in the past, but seemed to have them sorted out more recently. Both riders certainly know how to condition a horse. I wonder if they were...

    Why not?

    This is competitive riding on the international level, not some feel-good indulgence for the poor disabled people. Everyone competing in para has been classified to ensure they are...

    Because your classification -- the division you ride in -- is based on your degree of disability, not your skill or success as a rider. These two things can be very different.

    I, for one, would love to hear Aunt Esther's thoughts on the Para competition, as I would so love to be there watching live. Did she see any American riders go?

    As an amateur bringing along my own horse, struggling with my crappy riding skills and us learning the ropes together. His first event was at age 5, his last at age 15. A freak injury during a jump...

    I remember a Practical Horseman article with Phillip Dutton, probably written in 2000 or 2001 (I'm guessing for the May eventing issue) called "Four Star in Four Years" or something like that,...

    This stuff is pricey, but I like the way she incorporates the hair in either obvious or less obvious ways, so you can pick a piece that's sentimental to you but can look fancy at the same time:

    As always, GotSpots has got wisdom. Read and follow every word of that.

    Also, while it makes me sound cynical, having watched others go through this with the best of intentions, it does seem that...

    The only time I remember seeing human drug-testers at a competition was at Bromont years ago, testing Canadians. I've never seen it stateside.

    Leaf Pit at Morven, probably, or (because I despise bounces), the downhill vertical bounce on the Southern Pines advanced course, with a drop on the second element.

    I have never seen a rider get eliminated over a shoulder-tap based on the JJ's interpretation of the rider's intent (reprimand or encouragement). I really wouldn't worry too much about this. JJ's and...
