You are right, I have seen him, but can't remember his name either. Heck I can't remember where I parked my car when I go to the store. But I know you are right, I will look into him.
I think I have unwillingly caused him to be a snob. We go to rodeos but I ride English, I am a jumper, by choice. I also take the kids to Devon for the GP jumping. I don't believe I talk any crap, but I do go ballistic jumping up and down over Devon. I think I have influenced him in that. And there are no black GP level jumpers I know of.
I didn't mean to influence him, it's just my thing, so my support is much more when I watch it.
