    Eagerly awaiting Cacchione results here - but a question about the AQHA High Point Rider competition. (seems odd to be posting this in H/J - but oh well). Could someone explain how the scoring works for the rail phase? I assume that this is run somewhat similar to a flat phase in the Cacchione - working as a group at the walk, jog and lope. The scores seem very spread out, much more so that the usual flat phase scores in the Cacchione.

    The top two riders have scores of 211 and 210 respectively, then its 148, 133, 111, 106, 88, 76 to round out the top 8 - seems like a LOT of variation. Also, one rider has a score of 1 and five riders have zeros - surely there can't have been that many falls or eliminations.....

    Anyone familiar with IHSA western want to explain how this works to an HJ rider?

    In addition to riding on the rail at a walk, jog, and lope, Western competitors also must do a pattern. This could be why scores seem so spread out. The second part of the competition is reining. Scores of 0 are given in reining for going off pattern (over spinning, under spinning, scotching stops, etc).

    The scores you are quoting are the combined scores.

    Default Fun weekend

    We just returned yesterday and had a great time. My daughter competed in individual open fences; it was tough because a week ago she took a bad fall on her own horse and has a severely sprained knee with maybe some ligament damage, but she wasn't going to miss this even though her left leg was pretty much worthless to her. She made it through the course and got around as best she could and hopes to be back again next year!

    Horses were pretty good for the most part. They were supplied by a whole bunch of different folks, and the local schools (Stanford, Cal Poly, etc.) brought a bunch too. They definately saved the best of the bunch for the Cachionne.

    Flat class for the Cachionne was a marathon. They didn't ask riders to drop stirrups but it was just a ton of sitting trot, working trot, canter, circles, back to sitting trot, etc. with hardly any breaks to walk and it really weeded out the riders that were not in shape. After the flat phases there were three riders tied at the top (the only one of the 3 I remember was Matthew P. from Findlay, he rode amazingly this weekend.)

    We didn't see the over fences on Friday but came back for the top 10 ride-off on Saturday. Several of the top flat people were gone by then, and several that were down in the middle of the pack after the flat were back up in the top 10.

    The top 10 ride-off was really anyone's to win or lose. The eventual winner of the class came in at the top and stayed there, but there was a huge change in the rest of the placings. The U.Conn rider came back in 2nd but dropped to 10th; she had a gorgeous ride but had problems with the counter canter to the last fence and then a stop. Many other riders moved up or down. It came down to the top two, they brought them in to switch horses and then do a test. They each made a mistake: James F almost forgot his final element of the test (cantering a circle), and Hanna M had a big chip at the first fence, so after the judges conferred for a while, they brought in one more new horse and each rider did the test again on that horse. Both had good rides but James F, IMO, just had a bit more of that extra flair that won the class.

    It was interesting watching the stock class, especially the rail (?) work. It really helped that one of the stock riders from my daughters school explained a lot of stuff to us as to how they were being judged, etc., because we didn't have a clue. To me they all looked alike, but once she shared her knowledge with us I could start to understand it a bit. FWIW, she said when she watches a hunt seat Eq. class she feels the exact same way, LOL.

    Big congrats to Zone 6 that won the team hunt seat (UK) and tied for reserve (Findlay)!

    Weather was not quite what I expected from So. Cal, it was mostly overcast and a bit chilly but that didn't matter, we all had a wonderful time.

    We usually have a few weeks of "June gloom" type weather where it is overcast most of the day, it's not *always* sunny in so cal

    I'm happy to hear all the nice reports. My roommate helped run the show, she's been working on it (and stressing about it) for months
