    The NY Times spread of Fitches always kills me! In person we snicker at the ladies in their teeny heels and big hats acting like it's the Hamptons or the Kentucky Derby. Those folks usually hang at the tents while the horse people run around in shorts and boots like at any other event.

    Re photo 24 - I think they are just calling them guests as in people who attended - don't think it's invite only - you can pay for a fundraiser lunch: http://www.fitchscorner.com/inside/a...s/luncheon.htm

    To me it feels like a regular event that happens to have a tent for dressed-up people to watch stadium and mingle. haha You certainly don't see women in dresses and big hats wandering around the xc course.

    My horse would so spook at some of those hats.

    I'm glad at least one rider's name was given.

    Default would never have seen it

    Glad you posted this. I just noticed that #1 is my trainer....she had a great xc run.

    I agree...the photo spread is definitely NOT representative of the "feel" of the event. The Big Hat Crowd was not that large a presence.
