well I concluded I really suck at Hunters and need to stick to and concentrate on Jumpers and Eventing (x-c / hunter derby, etc)
Sat was the Table II2c class which I am used to, ride 9 jumps and as you head for jump #10 you listen for the beep which means YOU can't keep going, you stop and exit. The remaining jump offs are numbered in order 10, 11, 12 etc. usually 5 more. He did great in warm up! My OTTB got 1st in his 2' class and 4th in the 2'3"... as we were going out I could feel his rear leg lameness come on and didn't push him. He's got a big heart and high pain tolerance so I knew he was done, scratched from 2'6" class.
Sun was the Table II2b class. Thankfully someone explained the difference..now I get it! You do your course 1-9 jumps and then "wait" for the tone to continue the jump off. The jumps were ALL over and NOT in numbered order. So I had to return to 1, 11, 12, 2, 8 & 9 ... UGG and #11 was #5 earlier but you jumped from different directions. I had to scrible the numbers on my hand b/c no way was I going to memorize that well! My Anglo took 3rd in his 2' class and 3rd in his 2'3" .. it was mid way through this ride I got my rythum with him. My goodness, I just can't ride him the same as my OTTB...now know what to do & be successful.
sorry 3 of the photos were snapped from the video ... this way I could study the footage over and over and over..then the hunter one was just regular photo. The prof photographer was selling your prints for $40 each seems high to me. But no idea.
