    i was speaking to a few people on the weekend and i think the Grand Prix has large entries

    most of the 2 and 3 star people like Michael, Sonya, Belinda and Laurelle are running - i heard sonya was running her good chestnut which will be interesting

    and a lot of the 1 star horses i know Tim has 2 in etc

    so i think it will be great fun watching hope i can get up their!!

    to watch Sonya, Laurelle, Tim and Michael and thru in some of those gun young riders

    all going to be the fastest across the course

    that will be good to watch!!!

    I've never heard of it before?

    no im not jac.... too much for me i mat come up and watch but :)

    ok this event is where eastern state judges come over and judge west australia's young event horses they are in two categories we have 4/5 yr olds and 6/7 yr olds they have to complete a ridden workout (like a dressage test) then immediatly do 6 sj fences and 6 xc fences the 4/5 do 90 cm and the 6/7 do 1.5m then the top 6 horses with the highest marks proceed to do another event this is a gallop i think to see which horse has the best world class three day event horse type and blah blah

    the grand prix is set at 1*/2* height your choice which one. you have to complete the course i dont know how many jumps in the best time possible without knocking if a rail on a sj or a xc fence falls then 4 secs will be added to your end time not 4 penalties

    i hope that explains it enough:D
  15. Yep I've entered my 4yo in the 4/5 class but he's so green so at least we've got the next few years to keep coming back!
