Thanks so much for all the work and out of the box thinking that went into the creation and development of this series.  I've learned so much and haven't even shown yet!

 Thank you Kirsty for organizing this. We have shown in the regular HART shows for a while and will continue to support this organization. We have enjoyed the variety of classes and the opportunity to try something new. ...You are doing this for us, but more importantly for the horses at HART. 

My daughter loves the judges feedback she has received. Can't do this week's show but will be back at it next week. We appreciate all you do! 

This is my first time participating and I’m so excited! Filming tomorrow! 

 Thank you for having this virtual show. I only found it last week and gave a couple of classes a go. It was lots of fun and I loved getting the feedback so I can learn and improve. 

I’m enjoying watching and seeing the feedback! It’s been awesome!
