    I was under the impression TIEC had gotten the Fork with its CCI 1,2,3* for next year? Then he also will host WEG in 2018 so at the moment I figure MB and the TIEC gang will be too busy to worry...

    I get that Rebecca Farm is a no go, I just love the place (and I've never been there).

    I'd counter your view on the area around Fair Hill. Having lived in Newark and surrounding area, there are...

    And to finish that thought...and they need to be split out.

    Good thoughts on the horse view. Life is a risk, but we do what we can to limit that risk turning into a life or death situation. ...

    On a different note, education. My trainer is ICP rated and I believe in having a somewhat regulated training program. Yet while the USEA has education as its first core value, the actions tend to...

    In regards to USET Coaching I think JER nails it. The US has faded, because we had the likes of politically oriented, power hungry men in charge of the team. Their focus was on holding onto power...

    The FEI has one concern, how to make more money for a few and how to hold onto power. There is zero interest to hold onto a format that may honor the foundations of the sport, but does not bring in...

    I would wonder how long Eventing may stay in the Olympics. If it goes, then WEG is released from matching the level and can return to a full 4*.

    What would worry me is what the FEI is doing to...

    Yes! That was more my point. Just the reaction from kcmel and FA show that were it on course, it would be a rider problem and who knows if the horse would balk or not. In concept it is no...

    Budget certainly would play a large part in this equation. Let's jsut say that an average Rec HT runs @ 250 after fees and stabling. Add in $50 for gas, another $100 for food etc, and lodging...

    If that is the post and quote from it, I'd have to say that is not a good way to start off when talking about safety. Given the current track record, I'd say they may be even missing the "safe...

    In looking at the horse Fernhill Divergent, he was run 8 times in 2015, 12 times (now thirteen) in 2016. I had not heard of Julie Richards, but now see she was a 2004 Bronze Medal winner so she has...

    From my recollection of comments here and in articles, teams showed up with 3* horses only to find a pretty much 4* course. Basically, they guessed wrong or (tin hat in place), the FEI gave the CD...

    Given the rule change proposed by the FEI for the Olympics? I would agree. Tying WEG to Olympics standards just exacerbates the issue.

    Rare is the day the FEI looks away from a bad decision in regards to Eventing. If even one top nation said, no thinks, we're not going I'd like to think most of the rest would do the same.
