Chinch is always watching, even when it seems like he isn't! Chinch is always watching, even when it seems like he isn't!

Do you remember the sad feeling of a fantasy fading away when you figured out that Santa wasn’t real? I found myself struck by that feeling again yesterday when I saw my first display of incredibly poor sportsmanship at an event. Coming from hunter/jumper-land, I am no stranger to chaotic warmup rings and rude warm-up ring behavior. However, having been away from that for a while it was a shock to the system to encounter it again. Screaming and swearing at someone over a crossrail is bad enough, but to do that when you have been a hazard in the ring? That makes you a first class jerk in my book. Ah well, today is a new day. On to happier times.
