Long format: all horse inspections, dressage, cross country, roads and tracks, steeplechase, showjumping
Short format (the one causing problems): all horse inspections, dressage, cross country, showjumping
The problem is that people insist that their horse is fit and ready for Advanced when they really aren't. the fitness is tested by cross country, yes, but mostly by roads and tracks and steeplechase. the long format tends to bring people back down to reality and it picks out the ready ones from the ones who need more time.
btw eventn, I can't spell Trakhener? either. lol
