Ok...so there goes the USDF FEI Trainer's forum...guess I won't be going to Fla.
For the record, the new AA entity is a Sub Committee of the USEF Dressage Committee (not USDF).
How do you know we haven't? Multiple times.
For those who feel the need to say ugly things about those on the committee, HAVE YOU EVER TALKED TO ANY OF THESE USEF AA COMMITTEE MEMBERS?
In person. Not third hand?
If you had, I am sure your comments about these people would be considerably kinder.
Again, how do you know we haven't?
And how about this: why don't you AAs here complaining about representation, and whether the people volunteering their time and expertise are worthy of representing you, step up and get on a committee?
So here's mine....Ana Diaz....what's yours?
And for those of you who casually dismissed the Facebook AAEI group and say, TPTB should come here to see what we're saying: there is one huge difference with having a discussion on FB instead of having a discussion on a chat board:
The comments dissing the AA's speaking up, anonymously or not, are an example of the problem that AA's are trying to showcase. No one is listening.
As some wise man (or woman) once said, "Seek to understand before asking to be understood."
