I really enjoyed last year's show. The mute button is a wonderful thing when dealing with, first of all, the two judges in the booth who not only contradict each other but give us useless info like what lead the horse in on(tip: it doesn't matter on a trail horse) and the pack of people jabbering under a tree looking more like stable bums than equine professionals.

The gentleman Dan, and Lady that you have narrating during the freestyle constantly contradict each other and the other judges. We enjoy the show greatly, however can not stand those two. They really hurt your show!
