My horse was unfortunately one of the ones breaking gait. He just was NOT happy with the crowds/noise/etc that went on that evening. He warmed up beautifully in the Gold Ring, and then just lost it when we entered the Dixon Oval and saw/heard everything. It was a shame too, as we usually get a very high u/s ribbon. Oh well... Devon seems to always be our "bogie" show, as he just hates it there unless he has jumps to concentrate on instead of the crowd (he hates Harrisburg too, although he managed to get his head on straight and be Champion there one year). Such is life - he is a horse, and there is no reasoning with him.
I was trying to spot you but I wasn't able to.
Oh, well. I was hoping for you!
