I just got home from Scottsdale. I thoroughly enjoyed myself! I went to coach a client for Trail and he did outstanding. The weather was great. I did not run into one crabby or stuck up person. Everyone was so nice and friendly. I watched a lot of classes! They were wonderful. I did not watch any halter. Great youth turnout. Trail classes had over 400 goes each day. The show personal were great and friendly. I have nothing but positive things to say about the direction I see the Arabian show world going. FYI, the last time I was in Scottsdale for the show was 1988.

A mare I bred was also third but it was the Purebred Hunter Pleasure AOTR 55 & over this morning.  Peggy Weems shows her...Roxy Music.  For some reason I thought you showed against her.


Keep on the sunny side, always on the sunny side, keep on the sunny side of life...

One of the reasons is the number of classes. You are required to enter everything by closing date for entries (you can post enter at the show but the fees are enormous) so people enter every class then pick and choose once they get to the show. Luckily my horse is sound and has been able to show every day, some horses need more R&R than that.

Yep. Those are the new "leveling" classes, Select, Choice and Elite riders.
