    Just tuned in- hope I haven't missed the whole class!

    Does anyone know if the parade of special awards tomorrow will be televised? A friend of mine rides para-equestrian and will be riding in that tomorrow after an excellent performance today. I'm so bummed I won't be getting up there tomorrow and was hoping I might be able to see her.

    @Renn - nope, just prepping for the jump off. I think there are 5 in it, including Lillie and Tori!

    Great! I got to see Tori go. She has such a distinctive style!

    Who trains Gabrielle Bausano? She's had a very successful show so far.

    Darn shame for Lillie. Didn't look like Vanhattan really had any particular intention of going over that fence the second time he was presented. Did anyone catch what happened the first time? Spooked and then didn't really get his eye on it in time to do anything but say "WHOA NOW what's that?!"

    OMG!!!

    I saw that coming but I really, really hoped I was seeing wrong. It looks like she avoided getting stepped on- I hope so.

    Good ride by Tori! It's a shame about Katherine's turn. She and Tori were at the same time at the apex of it. It would have been interesting to see who won.

    I wish they would keep the feed going through hunt teams. I always am terrified and thoroughly amused at the same time. Mostly because I know everyone and something happens when the local horses hit the Dixon Oval for hunt teams...everything goes crazy and the horses act like whackadoodles!

    Don Juan looked like he slipped a bit around that corner too. Wonder if the footing is a little slick after all that rain

    Yeah, I'd loff to watch the hunt teams too.

    Anyway though, congrats to Tori - that's a spectacular horse, extremely well-ridden!

    I doubt it. It hasn't rained all day and it was MAD windy and quasi-sunny. The footing dries incredibly quickly even when it's recently wet. I walked all over the schooling area and it was mostly 100% dry. And the ring gets dragged/worked much more than random pockets of the schooling ring. I think a few horses took that corner just a bit too "motorcycled" to try to save time.

    It was completely dry today. The footing/ring looked great.

    I saw him slip a little too and my heart stopped for a second, but I agree with the others that it's unlikely due to slick footing. I rode in the Dixon Oval about 5 years ago before the new footing was put in, immediately after a huge thunderstorm with TONS of rain (stopped the show for about 2 hours and we didn't go until after 10PM), and even though the ring was still very wet, it wasn't at all slick. I can only assume the new footing and drainage is even better than it was then.
