    No grudges meant, I wish everyone who competes all the best, why do people get so defensive in the horsey world?
    I was not even refering to Beaudacious, I thought we had got beyond all that crap!
    Obviously some people are unable to move on???
    Oh well I guess its best not to ask a question in the future in case people take it the wrong way.#(

    Beaudacious - after how well beau did on Saturday, i'm not surprised that you placed well! This year yopur little horse has come along way!! when i first remember seeing you ride at ARC he was all over the place, and now all the training you are putting into him is finally showing! :)
    I would have competed on Sunday and I have done hack shows etc before but knowing how my horse performs this would have been a perfect show for him. I went to the spring challenge instead.
    These horses have never competed before or been to the odd one or two shows - they are performing very well thats because their owners have put in some very hard work to get them to this quality -a beginners day is the perfect place to see how they react and perform in the show ring - this is all IMO :)*

    i reckon the politics at these shows is becoming far worse than the official ring........AND THAT IS SAYING ALOT ... get over it people..... be happy with your results and move on :)

    I agree with oldhack
    move on. just because some horses and ponies where presented very nicely and worked very well, doesnt meen that they do not deserve to be there.
    im not trying to make an argument, im just stating my point.:)

    lol hacking always get very bitchy and defensive is crazy =D but keep smiling and who cares =P my friend has been riding for 6years and has a really expensive dressage horse and she took him there just because they dont do hackin at all and she has only had him for 6months its just a great day out =P i think the only reason a horse and rider shoul not be there is if they are offical and if they are not the everyone is welcome =D

    its funny how a horse can look like a professional with just some gromming and plaiting up which makes people question =P

    wannaz has always been bad for parking next time we should open up the top near the picture frame jump just for wanneroo members =D

    Hi Daxter,
    I have sent you a pm as requested.
    The car parking was unfortunate, we did have 2 car parking attendants. They did give instructions, which were not followed. I did call over the PA regarding a number of vehicles. We had official measuring on at the same time, we wont be doing that again. We will have a seperate measuring day.
    Any who wishes to protest about the eligibilty of a rider or horse does have the right to put in a protest. As long as the protest is in writing and accompanied by the fee (refundable if upheld)
    There were only a few local PC children there and they did meet the entry requirements. Our official Riders helped out by pencilling ect.

    i reckon. it was a huge event and i wasn't even competnig. i've been told before that i should avoid shows like that - even tho they're for beginners, the numbers are... incredible. i've been to two regular gymkhanas at other venues, and one here too & numbers have been MUCH better & less stressful.

    Hey it was my first ever show and my horse freaked out a bit at the start and we had a massive rear when i asked her to rein back but toehrwise all went well
    2nd handy hack
    3rd in pairs
    4th in hack 15hh +
    and 5th in pleasure hack

    I was unable to do the first 2 of my events because Honey refused to enter the ring with out taking off in the other direction!

    Was a great day congrats to everyone!

    If you want to get technical about this show there was a pony in the first ridden ring that should not have been there and they apparently were entered in the Walk/Trot/Canter but changed rings on the day......now we were against this combination knowing full well what was going on but what is the point of creating a stir when all the kids are having FUN!!! IT WAS A FUN beginners show!! Leave it at that. I hope there are plenty more Janet! My hat off to you.:))

    By the way this is a RESULTS thread not a whinge thread...the show has been and gone! Leave it be.
