    Once upon a time we 'graded' horses 3 (prelim) thru 1 (adv) and you had to have enough points to move up and indeed it did take much longer than it does today. I can see both sides regarding the old...

    I agree. Mark designed a great course and for such a small space, the horses have been able to maintain a fairly decent flow and the turn backs have not been too bad. Pretty great event so far.
