  1. TOO BAD DIRECTV ISNT GOING TO BE SHOWING IT! I CANT EVEN WATCH IT ONLINE, STUPID ANCIENT DIAL UP! ANYWAYS, GOOD LUCK TO ALL THE PARTICIPANTS AND THEIR HORSES. HMMMM. JUST THINKING. SINCE ACTHA DONATES SO MUCH MONEY TOWARDS RESCUES AND SUCH, WHY DOESNT THE WINNERS DONATE HALF OF THEIR WINNINGS AS WELL?

  2. Wish I could watch, but I have DirecTV and don’t get HRTV. 🙁 Too bad it’s not on RFD-TV, that’s the only horsey channel I get. Lol

  3. I want direct tv to have it!!!!!!!! I wanna watch this show!!!!! Please please please please make direct tv have it! Pretty please?? 🙂

  4. 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!

  5. 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.
