This Week in Carriage Trade
New in the Tack Room:
Interactive English Sets for Light Horses – but these are even MORE special, because these are the long-awaited Interactive English Sets. The note card describing everything that is in them is attached, but suffice it to say this is one of our biggest developments in the creation of interactive tack ever. With a texture, color, shine, and resizing HUD; built-in roleplay gestures; full interactivity to allow a rider to tack and untack their horse; plus chat commands to extend the use of the set, including two bridle options, and a scripted halter. This is an exceptional set that includes 12 colors, 4 metal options and 8 wool options, all in a single, beautifully developed set.
The set is available in Carriage Trade, the Water Horse sim, and SL Marketplace. Pony set to follow soon!
Also, 3 NEW texture HUDs for your Interactive English sets: Pastel, Pretty in Pink and Gothic. All have 12 unique leathers, 4 unique metals, and 8 unique wools, so there is no overlap between any of the sets, including the ‘Basic’ pack that comes with your tack!

Hump Day is Jump Day @ Carriage Trade!
Every Wednesday at 7 pm promptly, we will hold a weekly Cross Country competition on our full region cross-country course.
Entry is limited to Water Horse Avatars (and their riders). Horse do not need a rider to compete, nor do they need to be residents. We will provide saddle systems.
Trophy, 1-6th place ribbons for all entrants.
1st: 1,500 Coin + 3 Highpoints + 15 XP
2nd: 1,000 Coin + 2 Highpoints + 10 XP
3rd: 750 Coin + 1 Highpoint + 5 XP
Coin can be exchanged in Carriage Trade for various Carriage Trade Goods and Services.
Winners are determined by Time + Fault. In the event of a tie, there may be multiple jump rounds, with the fences increasing in height. Off-course is an automatic disqualifier.
Competitors wait in the On Deck ring and are admitted to the Course in order of arrival. Only competitors, riders, and course officials are admitted to course.
Meet at the Cross Country On-Deck Ring at 6:45 pm. We will begin jumping at 7 pm promptly.
We are pleased to announce that the Carriage Trade cross country course has been redesigned and is open for use!
What has been changed: the course is now longer and more complicated and includes ten more jumps for a total of thirty hurdles. The fences themselves are more complicated and in some cases more challenging. The course will require practice to obtain a clean round at speed.
The fences themselves are marked and numbered. To know if you are on course, simply observe the flag marks: Numbered white markers are to the left and numbered green markers to the right of the obstacle if you are jumping in the correct direction.
Using the timer on the course:
Start the timer, and then gallop through the STARTING line. Make sure you jump your horse through the markers (not to one side) to make sure your horse is marked as completing that fence. Faults on fences will be automatically counted by the timer. Finish the course by galloping through the FINISH line. You can see your final time, score, and completed fences on the timing board near the start line.
Other changes to the region:
We have removed almost all of the sculpted grass and cattails. As beautiful as they were, they contributed greatly to lag, particularly at some of the critical turning points in the course. Since removing these patches, lag has noticeably eased in these areas.
You also note that there is special ‘splashy’ water at various parts of the course, and in the small swan pond in the center of the region. This water has been scripted to interact with some new roleplay products we will be released in the near future. This water has also been installed in North and Royal.
Finally, we have removed Sheffield and replaced it with a small village (Land’s End) and some small cottages designed to support roleplay in the estate. More on that tomorrow.
Northampton is now open to play. Have fun!
