    This is a little fishy, I get my shavings from tractor supply which I figure does not buy them locally. What environmental concern could that bring? Makes me think I check out the local guys in tx...

    The interesting part to this relates to pace. Reading from some old salts, it seems that while the FEI went about changing the nature of cross country (and Eventing), they didn't do much about...

    Really? out of all that I posted, most of it tossing ideas out, some of it complimenting others, and some expressing just an honest opinion, you call me out on one thing, that I don't know for a...

    First off anoneventer, thank you for sharing much more than one would want to on a public forum. It is not easy to bring out our imperfections but, at least gor me, it makes us more human.

    Everything you say is true so the thought is that "optimum" is the "average" of all you say, I don't know how they figure OT today. is it just this distance divided by this speed? If so then they...

    A good point. I don't think there is a timer display at the end visible by a rider coming over the last jump, but not hard to hide :)

    Without a watch, without a visible timer, knowing the OT in...

    You know, these guys aren't gods. J's point may be that within the small realm that makes up 4* riders, they are not as good as we think**? We are always so quick to blame the horse like the rider...

    I am always intrigued by these posts by what they leave out while still looking for answers. That is not meant in a negative way, but to first point out how hard it is for anyone to truly provide an...

    Just to put this out, you don't "need" a watch :), it has become a technological aid to closer match actual run time to OT to win. Before the invention of the portable digital watch that could be...
  13. What if you had a blank slate.

    Retread, that seems to be a great approach for in the final scoring the same method is used across the board. Off the cuff I do not know if it fully resolves the question for if a rider run double...

    I take umbrage with the word freak out, but I can see your point. Not so much to counter, but safety is not a one and done thing. Safety is and should be an ongoing research. You make a valid...

    BFNE, I never put Buck down. In what way did I say something negative about the man? I said this is his business, is that a false hood? I said this is his job, is that a putting him down? I did...

    I didn't want to watch, but you had me curious so I pulled up Neil's run. I am open for correction, but if that open corner had a frangible pin, it did not work. At 4:20 you see them hit that back...
