Manning its field.
A careful eye on the Intermediate 1/2 Coffin.
The Training swail.
Oh yea, and it rained too - in August - so much for the tan I was planning to get during my day of jump judging.
Now lets talk Trakehners for a minute. Here are Waredaca's Prelim and Intermediate Trakehners. If we were to play a little game of which one is more like the horrible evil Prelim Trakehner at Loch Moy, which one would win?
Prelim Trakehner -
1. Nice solid ground line (nope, not at Loch Moy!)
2. Ditch underneath (yep, Loch Moy too - oh, but, Loch Moy's is about twice as deep and twice as wide).
3. Pretty minimal space between ditch and rail.
Intermediate Trakehner -
1. No groundline.
2. Huge ditch.
3. Freaking enormous.
4. Shit, this one's even the same color as Loch Moy's!
My conclusion: Loch Moy Prelim Trakehner = Waredaca Intermediate Trakehner.
Well, the good news is, when Katchi runs Intermediate at Waredaca, I can pretty much tell him to suck it up and jump the Trakehner, because he jumped one just as hard at his first Prelim!!!
If the weather holds tomorrow, I've got 4 headed back out to Win Green for another day of XC schooling - I really should buy a time share down there!
