Re: RC: THE NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP
One suggeston a friend of mine made once when we were talking about points (for a
local club award) was what another club she was in did. They awarded one point
per horse you beat. Therefore hauling to a ride with 10-12 entries and top
tenning wouldn't automatically give you more points than top tenning on a ride
with more entries. I thought it sounded like a good idea, and plan to bring it
up at our local club meeting in Nov. (if I can remembewr that long...).
