    Default My Only Critique

    I have only one critique (and it really does irk me personally) for this clinic.
    As most have said, this is an absolutely wonderful learning opportunity, put on by the most professional folks ever. The audience is huge due to the live streaming and then posting of all sessions for later viewing.

    Since most of the audience is not physically attending the clinic, every clinician SHOULD REPEAT BACK EVERY QUESTION ASKED.

    I am very surprised, given the experience of everyone, that this would even happen at all. There, I feel better now.
    Some days the best thing about my job is that the chair spins.

    Does anyone know when the other videos will be posted? I am on night shift and would love to watch when I have down time!

    I had the same thought the other day.

    My other tiny quibble was that a few times when GM was riding, the camera would cut to the horse's rider watching GM's demonstration. When GM is on a horse, please keep the camera pointed at HIM!

    When will they have Day 2 Group 2, Day 3 Groups 1 & 2, and Day 4 Groups 1 & 2? I work during the day and I was so disappointed when I came home last night and the sessions weren't available on demand

    I'm so glad they're streaming the clinic live and on-demand. I'm loving it. I do hope they have today's and yesterday's posted soon, I had to work and miss the live streaming.

    So what is the format today? Last year it was the pseudo-Nation's Cup, but this year it just looks like jumping coursework.

    I just tuned in to watch the 2nd group go and GM just said that they were taking a break until 10:40. Did he run over with the first group or did they go earlier then they originally said?

    They ran over. (Argh—have to be somewhere at 12!)

    My boyfriend's not a GM fan—I have it streaming through my TV and he said "I cannot listen to another minute of this. He makes me feel like an old man just listening to this."

    But everything (in this second session 1/6) that he is saying and doing is absolutely correct, and he (at 76) is doing a running critique while riding.

    Sorry, I guess you missed the joke. My BF is non-horsey—his commentary only comes from what he can hear, not from an understanding of any of it.

    Frances doesn't like to ride forward to the base (just as we all have preferences to the types of distances we like), so George was telling her that she needs to learn to like that distance—the same way you need to learn to like oysters.

    OK, see? See?? GHM says "Easy" when he means slow. He does NOT say "whoa". "Whoa" sends mixed signals. "Easy" does not. I knew I wasn't making this up!!!

    What an enormous difference from the start to the end of Kilian's vertical-oxer- that horse looks like a red hot powerhouse!
