Is it: equestrian "game?"

    ...or match or contest or what? How do you properly identify that event where the horses jump over crap and five people show up to watch?

    I believe it's called an "event"

    I thought this was gonna be about some hot-to-trot horsewoman.

    I would go with competition. Event is a specific type of equestrian thingy, I think.

    I think "massive waste of newsprint" is the appropriate term.

    Don't crop the horse's legs, either.

    Holy shit, do they get upset.

    I covered this once, and I have no idea of the answer to the question.

    Don't ask how I know...

    Equestrian COMPETITION
    Dressage EVENT(S)

    Now, I'm going to go over in the corner, nick a vein and bleed out.

    I've never actually had to cover one of these (thank God). But I have written one or two stories. I think it was a state championship wrap up story. So I was able to write around it, saying they won the state title, scoring XX points.

    But I would go with competition for the whole thing and then each event.

    So it should read something like this?

  10. Why not "..scored consistently at Muffin Meadows..." It skirts the problem and is briefer.

    Couldn't you ask Terry Liebel about this since since is the expert and covers it for CBC?
