The only complaints I have ever heard about Tulsa was in regards to management issues not facility. Tulsa has changed a lot in the last few years (I've seen the before and it was substandard) for the better. It is an awesome facility that, in my opinion, rivels any community's "best" show facility. I've seen pictures of Congress and have not been impressed. Those of us out West just can't make that trip due to expenses and time off. That's a lot of dough the registry isn't getting from entry fees. Its time that the registry stop worrying about who they are going to upset in the north east by moving the facility to a more centrally location. It doesn't HAVE to be Tulsa but it needs to be more accessible.kaykay said:I have still heard quite a few complaints about tulsa and i know gordyville is too small.
The only serious complaint I had was the racehorse barn. The worst barn imaginable! The first year at Tulsa I was also in there and it wasn't bad but wasn't good. This year it was hot not rainy and cold like 2003, so the dust and dirt was terrible. My solid black horse was pretty much a brown before I washed him. We aren't very popular yet, so we are partening up with a well known trainer next year so we will get the good barns.kaykay said:I have never been to Tulsa and I hope to go this year. I just know there is a lot of grumbling about not having stalls close enough to the arena and conditions of some of the stalls, speakers not working in the back barns etc. I do know they are working to improve this arena and that is great. But it would benefit our organization more to stop investing in someone else's business and invest in ourselves.
