    I've had torn ACLs in both legs. One had a torn meniscus, so it was repaired. It's been 100% successful. The other ACL injury, which came from holding a bucket while a horse was eating, didn't...

    Not to mention that there are more of them because the US is short of young horse starter/trainers, and getting quality show experience is much, much more expensive and limits people's desire to go...

    FWIW, Back in 2002 the president of the FEI was the Infanta of Spain, who was a huge supporter of dressage. She also hated the steeplechase phase of eventing because she believed it was unsafe. ...

    The FEI is certainly doing quite a bit of backing down lately over unexpected and unpopular rules changes. I may be nuts, but I don't recall so many rule "reversals" ever before the past five years.

    The FEI doesn't make all these changes without pressure from somewhere, and the somewhere has to be the National Federations. Back in 2006, the German NF expressed a "vision" for eventing which the...

    The lower levels in any English horse sport don't require specialized horses, except maybe hunters. But not in the Olympic disciplines.

    There were a couple of gay kings before Edward III. It would not be surprising if their wives looked elsewhere. Edward II's wife certainly did.
