Why don't you start a group in your area? Even to have a period at fun shows, is that what they're called?

Got that. I was wondering what kind of event she could introduce it at.

BTW, I will make it down for the Argentine Open next year. Can't wait!

That is a grand idea,

I don't know many poeple who would be interested tho, unfortunately :(

Most kids around here (who can afford horses) have super overprotective parents that only buy half-dead, broker than broke horses that can't canter so the kids don't get hurt. =/ Or expensive show horses that can never ever even think about gaming.

Might try to get some middle aged people together and try learning the rules, possibly play for fun at get togethers and see if theres more interest ;)

Look at that--CRUPPERS used on an English Saddle--AWESOME!!
I LOVE those warm up exercises, too.
Nothing like playing a game on horseback to really get your seat! The ponies look like they're having a good time, too. =D
I think if you're interested in the game you could start with one of those really big Jolly Ball's, get a foursome and play soccer (fut-ball.)

Hope that you fall in love with "Trot", like I did!

We get dozens of people from Argentina here for the summer months. If I can find some decent sized ponies...

Will get video.
