    Stuff her ears.
    And she's five! She's allowed to be green.

    There is a usea rule. If the competition is also nationally recognized, that would apply.
    I am sure the FEI does not allow this. I'm not a rules guru but .....

    I usually skip the awards ceremony too and also fly out of Cinci and I leave 2 hours from grandstand to airport boarding area. That's as close as you want to get I think.

    Background from an old timer:

    I received my latest copy of the US Eventing, and there is a nicely organized spread with all the data they have been collecting in the last several years on falls.
    It is fairly comprehensive and...

    The officials at the competition will watch a rider like this and communicate what they see among themselves. I have scribed for dressage judges, who knowing the test just presented to them might...
