Today I did my first open riding however I failed to recognize that it was Opening Riding I. I looked on the site today to find out the difference between I and II but could not find it but I believe 1 is novice/intermediate and Open Riding II is intermediate to advanced. While I'm not "advanced" I really not novice. There was a family there with their jr kid (who was ripping it up for a 10-12 yr old!) and a few other possible novice riders. The total rider count was 7 so that made if very manageable however a few us were hitting it somewhat hot while the others were at a different level. I don't believe there ever was a safety issue with the imbalance but in hindsight I felt bad in that we might have made an environment that intimidated some of the other riders. Sorry about that folks...... What have others experience been with open riding and the imbalance of riders skills? We have already heard the opposite in that there was some frustration of novice riders in Open Riding II but have novice riders had a frustration of feeling intimidated from riding in the sprint lane because of the fast guys doing their thing in it? While the the drome could help monitor it the responsibility comes down to us to ride appropriately for the level that the open riding has been assigned. Or am I making too big a deal of this?
