    looks like Region 9 may be one of the few in the country to have GOOD weather for their Champs.

    though we do get stuck by the time change - those 7 am rides on Sunday will feel REAL early

    I am so glad I decided not to persue regionals this year. Normally I would have taken 1/2 days last week to get in some extra time, but I ended up with such a heavy workload that I was there 12 hrs every day

    And now that our changes are clean 95% of the time (w/me, 100% with the trainer) we have been playing with multiples. Mare picked them up so quick that if I shift my weight in the slightest, we get a change. So no more adjusting wedgies whilst cantering If we had been prepping for the show, we wouldn't have been playing with new stuff. Rides like that make the crap ones so worthwhile.

    Good Luck to all!!! I love the facilities and the atmosphere there!

    Default Good luck to all riders!

    I will be spectating, and possibly shopping. What's the riding equivalent of the theatre well-wishing "break a leg"?

    Fall off? Go off course? Get eliminated? There are _so_ many ways to humiliate oneself.

    Well it's easy when the class size is reduced, by the TD eliminating a third of the competitors.

    For the first time, I'm glad I didn't qualify this year. Poor HDS show staffers - I'm sure they're pulling their hair out.

    Sorry. What are you talking about? Why poor staffers? If you mean whips of the wrong size, they're following the rules. That's happened at all championships this year.

    Cool

    Seems very, very odd to me that all of these people, who've been showing all year with the same whips, are suddenly "illegal". One or two, here and there, I can understand. But a dozen in the course of one day? And, as many have been 1/2" or less "too long", I think something's amiss.

    I don't have a dog in this hunt, either way, but I just hate to see someone overzealous ruining a year's worth of work for these riders. JMO.

    The TDs have made the same comments! Very odd! They came and remeasured the measuring area, comparing inside to outside because someone said it differed, but it didn't. I think I'd be checking ahead of time. SGray, are you here?

    Whips are only allowed in the open show and the SWDC classes. Were people trying to bring whips into the GAIG classes?

    I believe some questions were RC class warm-ups and some SWDC classes and do they follow RC rules when at RC championship.

    A friend got eliminated for a whip 1/2" (maybe less) too long. They trimmed off the frayed end to make it "legal". She has measured this whip in the past, and thought it legal. I think the "measuring area" needs to be an actual tape, and not just a section on a board on the arena wall. The rule reads that legal measurement is 43.3 inches, or 110 cm. If the TD was measuring at 43" even as being legal, s/he is off (short) by a little over 1/4". Might bear looking into, especially considering the number of folks that have been just 1/2" or less "too long".

    Now, in the case of the person whose whip was 6" too long? That one should stand.

    Or what about a friend who was eliminated for entering the ring late, even though she was actually 2 minutes early. Everyone's watch and phone said so. Even the TD and show officials argued with the judge. Nope..still eliminated for being late. *sigh*

    Yes, I heard about that, too. From a couple of different sources.

    It's pretty cool to see scores up practically in real time.

    But somebody needs to re-set the computer for the Pony Championship class. Their math is wrong!
