    Phillip can't ride trading aces because you have to declare the ride before Dec 31. At least I think so...i think I read it in an e-mail from USEF..It's probably long deleted. Right now the team is...

    That is unbelievable. You really need to know the FEI rules to protect yourself from good intentions but not proper procedures. Flexing a horse during a event would definalty be on the list of things...
