Stop and look

stop-sign1Today (Monday the 29th) is the beginning of the World Championship Show for our Appaloosa Youth. Trail classes are underway in the coliseum and a variety of roping and cow horse classes are in the Fordice Equine Center. Entry numbers are up from last year in the youth show and we already know that the quality is outstanding.

The AYA Speech Contest was held yesterday, with some excellent ambassadors for the breed participating. It’s always encouraging to meet our younger exhibitors/members, but I am also reminded of the responsibility we all have to keep them engaged in the Appaloosa community.

    Whoa! Anyone catch the discrepency with the numbers for Hunter In Hand Geldings? The order of go showed 58 entries (it took hours, I swear!) and yet when you look at the results, it shows a class number of 16. Have other classes been goofed up like that, too? Do we need to go back to look at the Order of Go pages to see the actual numbers entered and compare to the results?
    I’m thrilled to see those numbers, don’t get me wrong.

    In all the results that I’m looking at, the total number of entries is listed at the top of the page.

    Yes, but some of the classes, Youth Hunter in Hand Geldings for instance, still shows 16 entries under show results. That’s what came back for the finals. Youth English Showmanship 14-18 was the same way, but I see they updated from the 16 that was previously listed to the correct number. I think the “Show Results” pages for Youth English Showmanship 13 & under, as well as a couple of others still need to be updated.

    We should be proud of the numbers of youth that participated. I think it’s great that we had that many.
