Though I recognize that the warm-up ring is a necessary evil at horse shows, I still don't understand why so many people riding in it are either feckless or believe they OWN the ring. I mean seriously, I don't care how $$$$$$ your horse is or that you're riding a higher level than I am, it doesn't give you the right to throw common courtesy out the window and try to run me over. Also, I get that there are green horses (I have one!), but let's all just agree not to take the screaming harpy on a string into the warm-up ring with 47 other horses when you have other options (when you don't have other options, I get it. Also I feel your pain. :().

So, so true. I grew up riding at a VERY busy equestrian center where the indoor arena in wintertime might have 2 different jumping lessons, a flat lesson, plus 20 people schooling, all happening at the same time. We all managed not to crash into each other simply by being aware, and calling out (Rail! Inside! Oxer! that kind of thing.) Yet put 5 DQs in a ring together and it's like bumper cars.
