Catering to the Smaller Morgan Barns
this popped up in the Horse show scheduling thread:
“I also think if we want the breed to grow we need to make it friendly to the smaller barns.”
and i was going to comment on it, but i figured to just start another thread on the whole topic.
Doing my National entries a few weeks ago, i realized how much this show makes it hard for the average person.
I never realized how much it was to add a class down there, once you entries have been sent in! Why is this? What if my horse is only entered in one class, but is having an awesome show, and I want to take her in the open class, or just another class? Why do they make it so hard to add another class once you horse has already been entered?
I completely understand the hassle of complete post entries too, but come on? Extra money, then class fees, then more on top of that? Why is this so much? I think if Nationals allowed post entries to happen, the show would grow, with more people entering and entering down there. If you completely post enter, you know ahead of time you will not get the best stabling, so that is not really the issue…
