    I am certainly not confused. At least I think I'm not. Maybe I am. What were we talking about? I am so confused.

    Then train for it. Nobody is stopping you but you yourself. May I just point out that many of the long format riders (and many of their horses) have gone on to do quite well with the short format. ...

    Please let me apologise if this comes off as snarky because it is not meant to be but may, in fact, sound that way which it is NOT meant to be.

    You all are so dramatic. Can I let you in on a secret?? Mark B and the rest of you Americans are not that important that you could effect that sort of change in the sport world wide.

    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.

    I guess I just cannot get my head round the push back. This event is not, to my knowledge, meant to be an avenue to effect change in the format/sport. It is meant as a show case of combined...
