the junior/am's jump 3'3, not the 2'9 they are separate divisons therefor the child/adults would not be allowed in the jr/am classic.

Thats my take on it anyways

on_the_rocks is correct. Modified Child/Adult 2'9" Hunters are a different division from the Modified Junior Amateur Hunters, who jump 3'3".

Sorry, but that doesnt seem fair at all! So just because the mods. only jump 2'9 they arent allowed to show the classic?!
why cant they be added to the junior/amateur hunter? just change the height to 3 feet! That way people dont have to show the classic but if they want to they can.

Then everybody can show, and no bodys left out.

Sorry, just my thoughts

that would be a good suggestion to make to your zone contact. Having the mod. child/adults is still fairly new at champs as it was just added as a core (qualifying for championships) division 2 or 3 years ago and that may be why a classic has not been added as of yet. Definitely something to think about for next year though

The only rule around the modified c/a division is that if you compete in that division, you cannot compete in any other over fences class at the same show except the mod child/adult medal.

That rule applies at champs as well.

i completley agree with you 100% green_apple_lover. i really dont think its fair that just because the heigh of our divison is only 2'9'' doesnt mean that we dont get to do a classic at championships. thats just my opinion. i definatly think we should talk to our zone about adding one

But how come the lows and the trillium hunters are together? the height difference for the mod c/a to the junior/ amateur, and the lows to the trillium hunters are both 6 inches.

Its not fair that every other division but the mods. and the short stirrup get to go!.. its not like they are more important or anything.

Why is this the case?

Modified Child/Adult riders can not even jump in their equitations at 3ft (horse size). So it would not make much sense to allow them to move up to 3'3 for a classic. And then again, if you are showing at 2'9, how would you be able to classic at 3'3? That's a full 6 inches higher than usual. But I completly agree that it is not fair that the Modified riders can not do a classic. It would have been okay if the classic turned out to be a Hi/Low thing - 2'9 & 3'3.
Definitely agree it is something to suggest to the zone reps though.

See you in September!

Don't want to offend anyone but if you are able to be showing in a classic at 3 foot than you should be in a 3ft division. That was how it was explained to me. And mods get a medal. It wopuld be nice if they could have a classic at 2'9. It is a bummer that one horse can't compete in both classics as in my situation my horse is half leased for the childrens but I also show as well, but rules are rules.

Might of missed it but how high is the j/am classic?

Well dont want to offend you, but to me personally thats like saying if you have the money why are you not on the A circuit.
Not everyone want to go in a very competitive division, like the childrens. (hense the mod c/a)

I agree with both sides kind of. It would be nice for them to add a 2'9 classic, although that may take time since the division is pretty new. I also think Angel's Epiphany is right - it's kind of silly to ask to show a 3'3 classic when you are in a modified division that's 2'9. You're showing at 2'9 for a reason (whatever it may be), but it would not be fair to allow someone in 2'9 to show at 3'3 at the same show. Anyways, the mods do get a medal, AND it's an under 3' division that goes to the championships - consider yourself lucky! The Mod childrens and adults OR short stirrup or any of the A, B, and C equitations on the A's CERTAINLY don't go to the Royal, and I don't see them going anytime soon, or ever. If you wanted to do a classic that bad, and thought you could do well, then you should have done the childrens.

If you're showing all year in a Mod 2'9" division, you're not going to be allowed to show in a 3'0" classic. That really doesn't make sense at all.

Just do it next year.

I don't see how it doesn't make sense to be allowed to do a classic at that height, people can do that division for many reasons and not only height alone, just because I have a horse that can jump the section 4s doesn't mean I am going to throw him in their blindly. Many of the horses in that division simply did the division out of convenience or ring time. And if they wish to compete at 3'0 then who are we to stop them? I mean they are all paying the same fee correct?

I believe that the Modifieds was a division created to bridge the entry to competing on Horses from ponies or from Primary divisions. As such it has restrictions on it to keep it a horse entry division. You cannot show in it and show in any other core division, so why should you then be allowed to do a classic at a higher height. No other division allows you to do the classic at a higher height, this is no different. You can argue that it would be nice to have a classic for the Modifieds, but that is something to bring up to your zone reps for next year. As mentioned previously what about the Eq qualifiers, and short stirrups, should they all have classics too..... Modifieds have a medal division that they can qualify in, not everyone else has that.. ponies don't.

Modifieds may have a medal but every other division can do the equitation if they wish to qualify for their extra rounds as you said.

No one else has the medal as they are eligible to compete in the equitation classes.

Ok, so now I have a question about the PONY classic .

So I made it in the eq but not ponies, now since I didnt make in the ponies could I still enter in the classic? Or do you have to qualify in one of the pony division?

I had that problem last year where I made it in equ but not in the div. Unfortunitly they told me that I can NOT do the pony classic. You have to qualify in the pony div.

Adult Amateurs jump 3', and yes you do have to qualify in a division to show in the classics, you can't compete if you qualified only in the Eq O/F.

Consider it incentive to improve and go for something bigger next year. The modified child/adult and short stirrup are considered stepping stones, not an end in itself and I am frankly glad that there is one less incentive for it to become that. If you want the privilege of showing in the classic you will simply have to step up your game for next year.

I agree with SONIC 1015. Classics are an earned privledge and while I am not trying to belittle the Child/Adult Modified Division it is supposed to be a stepping stone division, and it is great that we have it, but the classics are a great incentive to aim higher for the Childrens or Adult Amateurs next year.

Stop whining on an online message board and contact someone who actually should care. your zone rep/the show organizer.

No one on here can do anything except annoy you.

Just an FYI, all entries, stalls and camper sites, must be booked through your zone rep, all others will be void. Please stop calling the EMG office to book stalls and campsites.

Ok, so ive been reading this from the very first post. i wasnt going to say anything (even to those rediculous posters) i think its so stupid that the mods and short stirrup dont get a classic! and to the poster above how rude are you!!! your telling these kids who worked so hard all year that they should just wait till next year to show the childrens! it doesnt matter if the mods is considered a stepping stone, everyone is paying the same amount of money, if not more. and that its a priveledge to have a classic. (and this division is any different?)
how would you feel if someone told you your division doesnt deserve a classic!?

Wow, i would be so angry if someone said that to me when if did my best, qualified for champs out of 30 people! what about the trillium hunters eh.. they deserve a classic? theres only 4 of them at each show! so if height is a main factor here deciding who gets classics, im happy im not on trillium

thank you soooo much A.Circuit.Hunter.822123! atleast somebody has some common sense and isnt as stuck up!! most of the kids in the mods. did really try hard out of 30 or more people and those who make it to champs/ in the top 10 should be proud and should get a classic! and it is so true, everybody is paying just as much money as everybody else!! wow i cant even believe that some people would say that just because child/ adult mods. is a stepping stone and 2'9'' means that they should get a classic! thats like basically saying that they're not good enough! wow people, who do u think you are!

Yes, you claim that you should get a classic because you paid the same amount of money and then say I'm stuck up...ok...

I don't think how much you pay for a class constitutes talent or effort. Nor do I think that you need the same amount of effort and talent to jump two different heights (even 3 inches). furthermore, I believe greater talent and effort should receive a greater reward. Thus I applaud the show management decision and hope that it provides incentive for raising the bar instead of lowering it.

Simply put, you can't use the diving board when you refuse to swim in the deep end.

I think that this board really is getting out of control. The point is that there is not a classic this year and although many may or may not agree with it, that is the schedule. The division in question is still reletively new and your zone reps need to work with THJA to see if one can be added for following years. Its really not going to be solved on this board.

I apologize if I sounded condesending in previous posts, it really was not my intention. I understand how hard everyone works to get to Championships and in no way meant to belittle it. I simply stating my understanding of why it is what it is.
