But for now back to the FL topicÖ. I will only go for 3 weeks but financially I canít do much more than that even with cutting a lot of costs. My friend is going to Ocala for 5 weeks but Iíve gone before, and Wellington is where I want to be! And lucky for me I start a new job today!!
I donít have an illusion that I will win Ė I may not even place but I want to use it as a feel for the grounds so when I go back I know what to expect, where everything is, how classes are run, peoples turn out and I want to go look at some 6-7 figure hunters (window shopping to the extreme? Lol) I need to brush up on the American terms for classes, I believe you have the jr/am ( or jr/aa or jr/ao) low-med-high which is 1.20/1.35/1.40 ? Please correct me if Iím wrong here!
If anyone has any advice or tips about wellington or anything you would find helpful to me I would really appreciate it and what to expect that would differ from Ocala. Like peoples attitudes and things like that, temperature, classes and what to expect there, if there is any different rules about showing.. I donít know how you would know they are different than Canada. I know WEF is big money so I am doing it on a budget but if having the best of the best clothes necessary? I like to have my riding speak for itself but would it be better to have a really good set of things for big classes? Like better helmet, breeches, jacket, horse boots exc? I am going in March so I have time to save for myself to buy some new things Iím just curious if it actually matters or not or it thatís all just for show.
Or if anyone lives around there and knows of any fun things to do on the off time or sight seeing ( no clubs or anything like that ). My parents will come down for a week and I donít want to keep them at the show the whole time.
