    Hey peeps!

    I am dragging my mom along and will be my first strip!

    Probably not the greatest plan going in. The trainers and especially the riders are under a lot of stress and pressure, keep that in mind and just try to be respectful.

    Also if the National is anything like WIHS you'll need a wristband to get anywhere near the horses.

    That said, the stands will be filled with competitors, instead of bursting in on the competitors that are busy with their horses, why not start a chat with those having some down time... but remember these are people, not show dogs

    I was wondering that too!

    Introducing the "ASPCA Maclay Strip Medal". Final 4 competitors are to strip themselves and their horses and ride a short test au natural.

    Actually, I think for that class I'd prefer a palomino. Flesh tones, and all that. Like dancers and skaters who wear beige shoes/skates to make the leg look longer.

    Definitely not a black horse. That would really make my leg stand out- but not in a good way!

    Perhaps they were unable to locate a loin cloth to go over their front like this man and were eliminated.
