    I don't know what you do with your time.
    Nor do I know who you are accusing of being elitist.

    I judged a Derby/Qual with Judy Bly. We had lots of time. So we ran land marks, land blind, water marks, and then water blind.

    I disagree with your interpretation of what I have written. Where have I ever said that a dog must gallop? Frankly, these discussions of trots, canters, and gallops are more detailed than I care to...

    When you promote your own personal preferences, and ignore the Rule Book, you make judging a totally subjective matter. I think that when you pass/place a dog that is "painful" to watch, you are...

    A few general thoughts:
