    I don't know.
    I personally live nearly 4 hours away and the cost of stables it just not what you need ontop of everything else. If it does not go smoothly with the SEC this time as I've heard it hasn't for alot of people I will never compete there again (I won't fancy standing around with a colt while waiting to find a stable key!).
    Lets hope it goes smoothly so I can continue to attend these shows but I just live too far away for stuffing around and its certainly not country friendly.

    But we won't start this convo again hey :p**).

    I am not going because of the new fees, especially when the All Stars show is on the same weekend. Don't want to start this convo again, but thought you should know quite a few people are not going to All Arabian because of this.

    I'll be there with my girl on Sunday. She's the big buckskin - hard to miss. I decided to get her clipped as she was a little on the hairy side. We are in 2 halter classes and have entered 2 ridden (although I'll decide on the day whether I am brave enough or not). I'm really looking forward to it (although i was hoping it wouldn't be so hot!

    Arnie & MPKG what i meant was that i understand most ppl arent going because of the new stable system, us included, but i'm glad that some ppl are still going to support the arab show even though it is now alot harder to justify the price hike.

    For us to take a baby and a newie for 2 classes each plus the stables was a pretty penny.

    By the way King is really growing into himself and developing into something quite specky. ; )

    I'm not sure, I think All Stars.

    Try giving her a call :)

    Yeh, good for those that can afford it :)

    I agree Cruise 99. Was expensive enough with one let alone two and more! I had thought about missing out due to the price hike but seeing as their the only shows my guy attends (because we live too far away to attend anymore) I thought I'd give it a go before making up my mind.
    Thanks for your lovely comments :D.

    At the Mini Show on the weekend just gone... we travelled the 1.5hrs with
    4 mini's. They ended up after all stops being on the float for 2 hrs.
    Got to the SEC Sat arvo & after MANY phone calls to the person to unlock the stables went unanswered, the mini's stayed tied up outside the stables for several hours.
    In the end we used someone elses (friend) over night.
    Had our stable unlocked in the morning but we had no use for it then.
    Though someone else was using it.

    Not happy! What a balls up this new system they have happening... or not happening! #(

    geez, i hope there onto it at the all arab, cause i have a colt, mind you a quiet one, but there will be plenty of stallions there, and im sure their owners wont feel like doing the same

    I had a stallion, as well as a mare (not shown for a while & ended up coming down with stress colic Monday, related maybe? I don't no...) & a young colt plus friend's filly. Having them tied up for ages just wasn't fair IMO. #(

    But i'll be there showing Flame on Sunday, it's only been 8 days since he's been here & he's looking better, just not as good as i had hoped *sigh*.
