    Default Queeny Training Fence 6?

    What was the problem with Fence 6 on the Queeny Park course today? It caused all three of the E's in Training and the only E in the Championships Division.

    To answer my own question (or rather get an answer from one of the Training Division riders):
    "It was a drop into water - you had an option you could the lower side but the edge was hard to see or the bigger side with a little log on top. I chose the bigger side because I wanted the defined edge. It was simple looking - the only reason I can think for the issues is you come into the field and go up a hill so the horses don't see the water right away? there was also a log on the base of the water side - it was really designed to jump up - that caused them to jump out a little instead of drop down. My horse leaped and unseated me goinig into the water - I came really close to falling off in it & jumped 7 w/o stirrups."

    ksbadger, were you there? If so, we probably saw each other. I was riding around in a golf cart all day. You?
