The Southern Pines CDE will use SnapSnapMessaging (sending cellphone Text Messages) to supplement the established methods of competitor oriented announcements. (things like 'Official Dressage Scores posted' and 'Course walk at 4 instead of 3')
The event will also take advantage of LiveScoring, where the scores will be posted on DrivingNews as they are processed by the scorer throughout each day of competition.
Nice to see our own Ashmonte is driving Prelim pony pairs.
I guess Maggie, Mollie and ???? (What was her 3rd pony;s name?) will be competiting for Pat.
For those of you who have never been to the Southern Pine facility, it is magnificant. Rolling hills, pines, the horse trails through the huge jumps!!!! One of my favorite memories from 3 years ago when we were campaigning Looker!!!
49'er -- No, Kate showed her own advanced single horse Hastening Winslow. I navigated for her, and we won! Woo hoo, what a blast! It was a real nail-biter of a finish, and there was no speaker system in the collecting area. We didn't really know that we'd won until one of the judges shouted congratulations from the hut at ringside. It was an exhilarating experience.
Ashemont, I'm sorry that I didn't get to see much of you this weekend after the briefing. Your marathon and cones were neck-and neck with second place....good work! Hope you had fun, too!
Kate has Cowboy and Twister at her farm, keeping them in work until Donna's back on the box seat. We love your boys, Donna. Hope you get well soon!
