Maura, I said I wasn't trying to be disrespectful to any discipline, I am ignorant of English riding (and yes, anything thats being ridden in an English saddle is English to me) as I ride Western, have ridden western for 31 years, and have never ridden English, studied English, or had any inclination to do so. I know nobody that rides English, has ever thought about English etc. =)
How you tell the difference between all the English events, I have no idea.
I just wanted to know why the horses were wearing hats. =)
Spent a whole hour today laying in a pasture, waiting for a sparkling vampire to show up. Alas, I woke up and looked over, only to find a mound of horse crap. Sigh.
