    I'm going to add to the confusion a little more, because why not?

    National standard prixs have to give a minimum of $25,000 in prize money. A class that offers lower than that cannot be...

    Yeah, I'm most familiar with the specs for nationals since those are the majority of what I've done - I was kind of guessing at regional, haha! I should have written the same for 1.60 as I did for...

    ^ Yes.

    A regional standard prix, as per USEF, is up to 1.45m with no jumps lower than 1.35 (I think - none of those in my area so not familiar with them).

    A national standard prix is at least 2...

    I wrap Nikki in standing wraps every night. If we jumped some, I'll use Sore No More first; if we did a big class, I'll poultice her.

    Before she works, she gets a session with her Equissage; if...

    Dan Urban won the prix on Tom Urban's super cool horse, Astro Boy.

    Here are the videos from yesterday:

    First round (so sorry, WM, I didn't mean to make the liverpool require being a pretzel)...

    Nikki jumped double clear in the grand prix tonight to finish 2nd, despite my best efforts to kill her at a liverpool vertical in the first round :lol:

    She also won another open jumper class on...

    I've never tied to a trailer and never will.

    If I'm at a day show, my horse will be on the trailer unless we're out and about either working or hand-grazing or something.

    I've seen too many...

    You do briefly see a shot of Nikki galloping through the frame, to give Momma P some credit.

    Here's a brief synopsis of the round:

    Muddy footing. WM is not terribly impressed with the height...

    Wondermare jumped the only double clean in the open jumpers at Mason City yesterday to win the class. She is in a new shoeing setup; Scott Lampert shoes her when she is in the Midwest, and he put...

    Ooooh, I tried that once!

    (and bought the picture, and framed it actually)

    I stayed on and finished the round without additional faults, but did break my hand and give myself a nice big bruise...

    Molly Malone is awesome. I've always been a fan of Rolf's horse as well.

    Posted this on the other thread, but guys, it's Cortes. With an S, not a Z. Minor detail, but I think it's important to...

    The ring at Saugerties brings out the extra edge in a lot of horses - it is HUGE and a lot of people get out there going "wiiiiiide open spaces!!!"

    It's Cortes C, not Cortez C.

    Oh, I bet you're right... I think the OP would be fine either way, but agreed that calling the USEF would be a good start. I wouldn't call the USHJA for that, since ammy status is a USEF thing.

    You do not have to be an amateur to participate in IHSA, so no, that would be fine.

    Wondermare gives into the theatrics sometimes too.

    I think the cockiness and attitude help make a great jumper. It's something I'd look for in a horse if I were looking for one. There was a...

    OP, your question has been answered a few times throughout the thread -

    It's acceptable because the jumpers are completely objective. It doesn't matter what the horse looks like going around, as...

    SlamDunk, this isn't the one you're referring to, but it's along the same lines and it made me giggle. What a horse!

    You can't force a horse to jump around 1.60m ;) They have to want to do it (at least to be successful).

    Rothchild is who I thought of immediately as well - and I'm pretty sure the OP is referring...

    But remember, folks, it's not about race :rolleyes:. Just ask any of the [white] men who say that.

    Ugh... disgusted in the conduct of my city right now. Shame on you, St Paul police - and shame...

    Fabulous. Now just to find a way to try them - Dover's website keeps leading me to dead-end links, so haven't been totally successful on that front yet. Super curious to try them, though!

    WEG ;)

    Very unfortunate for the British team, especially since they don't have Big Star either, but I'm glad that they're doing right by the horse and taking good care of her.
