    who said we were complaining. chanel and cuddly_pony started this out as a conversation not a fight. i love the fact that the committee r trying to make a change. and reading some quotes and comments, i think it will thin out compact and become really good but if any1 red my comments... THEY WERE NOT AN ARGUMENT OR ANYTHING EVEN IF IT DID SOUND OFFENSIVE 2 THE SEC

    the above quote looks like you had a very opposing opinion which was one of the main comments i responded to....... your opinion it made references to the commitee looking bad..... dont see how :confused:

    Well said N', there are 2 or 3 people in the discussion who are just being difficult IMO, after we have all explained they still aren't happy, allow me to recap, the old surface was very old and slippery and had to be replaced, we have been given the same surface that they had at the olympics, they couldn't replace the surface at any point in time in the near future that would allow enough time for the surface to be worked in so they allowed the kids to ride on it at the show as a lot of them don't get the opportunity.

    As someone in here said earlier, i didn't like the extra fees at the sec but now I see things are actually happening I don't mind as much.

    EWA are making GOOD changes and we should all be supporting them.

    Tammyprez, in your post you said that it makes the committee look bad, she was saying that in your post you ARE complaining which you just told us all you are not complaining.

    She was also questioning you on why the committee looks bad because of this which I am also wondering?

    because of the bad colour coordination-like the brown seats and blue walls. and at first i thought the ground was going 2 b 2 boggy

    Im going to hopefully check it out next week, if i can get a booking after work that is and organise to pinch someones float for a few hours, looking forward to giving morgan something else to look at besides the arena at home he hasnt been anywhere since the SJ champs.

    Does anyone know if there is jumps set up in there coz the email said it was free to SJ in there so have they set them up or what? help would be appreciated.

    I will say one thing tho i took a peek at SJ champs nd i must say that blue colour they picked for walls is pretty gross it clashes with the green rafters and fruit n veg sighns around the place, but thats just a matter of opinion i guess, i will judge the surface for myself but im sure it will be fine once its worn in

    How much does the indoor usually cost to hire?

    Oh to be the Equestrian WA.

    Don't do anything and you're buggered because everyone complains.
    Do something about it and you're buggered because everyone complains.

    I spent some time walking round there today on a professional basis in connection with the proposed upgrades and whilst I can't comment on the suitability of the indoor surface there were a few horses going round with what looked like very little trouble.

    The colours indoors make it a lot brighter today in Winter than it was for the Summer Series Dressage in the height of Summer. It will make greys stand out a lot better in photos against the walls too.

    Good luck to EWA they are trying to make something of the facility.

    Well I rode on it today and I think it's fab. It was a bit boggy up near the scary judges dungeon but I suspect that was because eveyone took the time to get their horses used to it.

    With rolling and compaction and more horses on it, it's going to be a great surface. I think EWA are doing a great job and kudos to them for allowing us in for free!!

    I'm off to have a ride on it tomorrow!

    I think it's exciting getting it all done up :)

    I rode on it this evening, I think it is excellent in there.

    I was skeptical about the blue walls but once you are in there it is actually quite nice.

    I didn't think the surface was boggy at all as it has quite a lot of spring to it, I was watching a small galloway go around in it without any problems and I doubt even small ponies would have any worries.

    I think it is already getting better and better rapidly as the days go on but even if it didn't get any better than it is right now it is still beautiful to ride on.

    Very very nice to ride on, probably the nicest surface I have ridden on.

    Well done I say to EWA.**)
