    It's interesting hearing the different scores from the judges. Some big swings depending on where they are sitting.

    I thought Chris Payne's ride was beautiful - the horse may not have been jumping like Inclusive, but had a lovely way of going. He got a 73.5. Kelley Farmer on the other hand missed to a jump and was rough in a few spots and very coming and going. She got an 87. What did I miss there? :S

    Kelley butchered that jump going away towards the scoreboard. I really liked Chris Payne's ride? Holden played after the one jump but other than that there wasn't anything that I saw?

    Goodlife: I agree. I thought she didn't look together with him at all, especially after the one rough landing and almost prop and stop after it. She looked like she was working really hard to get a big jump out of him. I normally really like him but tonight just didn't seem smooth at all.

    Empire's round was far more than 1 point average better than Mythical's. Bummer on that score.

    Could live without the bright red belt on Keenan, as well.

    And this is why I like jumpers, way to much subjectivity for me in hunters.

    So only one horse is jumping 4 ft?

    Parkland looked listless in that win picture. Not picking on him, but sad to see a horse with his eyes half closed and just not "in the mood".

    Yep. He didn't look good. He was dragging his toes behind.

    I was trying to not be overly judgmental based on yesterday's events, but he really looked dull and lifeless even when in the arena. Who knows...maybe it's just his type, but he didn't look very alert.

    I haven't been watching this from the beginning and I don't know the format of how this is running...but I'm so confused. Are the awards they are showing from right now or are they awards from earlier? Are there different heights competing in this? So very, very confused over here. Might help if I actually listened more to what they are saying instead of reading the COTH boards!

    I bet he's just reflecting on his past life as a hick in Holland when he could run around freely like his sister does here:

    Some of these rounds have been just beautiful, but anyone else find the big fake tails distracting? I have found myself staring at the tail of almost every horse.

    Is it typical to have events running so late? I'd be so tired!

    The awards were for the highest scoring rounds so far in the different divisions, not for this class. There have been different fence heights in this class,depending upon the height the horses were jumping when they qualified for this class.

    Really appreciated seeing such a bold, forward pace from Liza. That was great.

    The awards they showed are based on scores from their classes earlier this afternoon.

    Riders/horses compete at the height they qualified for (3'6", 3'9", or 4') but are judged as one class.

    Where did they say you go to see the scores from both rounds?
