USEF Leading Eventing Sires List (http://www.usef.org/_IFrames/pointsAwards/points/leadingSiresM.aspx?year=2009&section=5800&viewCat=Eventing)

As the USEF notes:

We welcome any correction, addition or input you have. Please forward correspondence to kball@usef.org or fax 859-231-6662.

So please, check your eventers' sires and see if your horse(s) is/are recorded correctly.

If we want this list to be useful, it really needs to be accurate.

But does USEF record the results for eventers who do not have a full USEF registration? Many Eventers don't have full USEF horse registration.

Like it says on the USEF page:

This ranking is based on points earned in licensed USEF competitions. In order to earn points, horses must be recorded with USEF and their owner must be a member.

Janet, what you're saying is true but even so, there are many omissions on the list. To cite an obvious one, Mandiba cannot possibly be the only Master Imp offspring who is USEF-registered (http://www.usef.org/_IFrames/pointsAwards/points/leadingSiresDetail.aspx?year=2009&viewCat=LeadingEventingSire&sid=4547896&section=5800) and competing in eventing.

Another problem with this is that a stallion can get on the list - indeed, very highly on the list - with only one super successful offspring. I think it's hard to say a horse is a top eventing sire when they've only got one out and doing it (may be be, may not be, but that's not much information to go on). It would penalize some nice stallions, but I do think there ought to be at least 3+ offspring to get on the list.

But that's why this newer 'interactive' list is a big improvement -- you can click on the sire's name to see how many of his offspring are out there competing and at what levels.
