    I disagree with this proposal.

    I am fine with mixing HM riders in with youth riders in Pony Club lessons, but I don't know of anything that keeps you from doing that now? I am also in favor of...

    1. We need to strengthen penalties across the board for cruelty.

    2. Yes, we need to allow pain and suffering or other claims in civil courts.

    3. Criminal negligence needs to be utilized.
  3. One of the the things that this tragedy brings to...

    One of the the things that this tragedy brings to light is the fact that horses are only viewed as property by the courts. Until more than the monetary value of a horse can be recoverable in court,...

    Exactly. It also fosters an "Us vs Them" mentality.
  5. Once again, those of us opposed to the rule...

    Once again, those of us opposed to the rule change are just too damn stupid to understand why it is necessary. They just need more time to "educate" us.

    RIDICULOUS and INSULTING.

    Honestly,...
  6. I'm sorry but I call BS. All fences do not need...

    I'm sorry but I call BS. All fences do not need to be max height. Novice is 2'11. If a fence is measuring 1.5" over height and you move it down a hole, that fence measures at 2'8 1/2". That isn't max...
  7. That seems to be where this all is coming from....

    That seems to be where this all is coming from. Instead of reeling in the CDs, we just change the rules and find a few pros to endorse it.
  8. Did anyone else see Richard Jeffries video on...

    Did anyone else see Richard Jeffries video on USEA FB page? I am so sick of USEA treating those of us that disagree with the proposed changes, as just being too stupid to understand why we must...
  9. I'm sorry, but I disagree. Paid positions at...

    I'm sorry, but I disagree. Paid positions at USEA are at a minimum and that keeps our dues lower. Most, if not all, Board and associated task force members are volunteers who pay their own...
  10. Brian is exactly right. Why on earth do the...

    Brian is exactly right. Why on earth do the rules use words like "should" and unclear descriptions, when designating the maximum difficulty for each level. That's a cop out and is putting too much...

    I think it is time to start naming names of course designers that are pushing and/or exceeding current guidelines. Please post the name of the CD for the courses your are talking about.

    Not a fan of indoor eventing... at all. It needs to go away.

    EXACTLY! This is a way an organizer tries to be nice and gets kicked in the teeth. There should technically be NO divisions in a true Three Day.

    Trying to get more ribbons in more hands...

    If people want to enter Novice, all they have to do is full out the form without the "B" on "BN" on the entry form!
  15. I don't know if speeds were intentionally set to...

    I don't know if speeds were intentionally set to allow a bit of trotting, but it was well known that you could potentially trot a fence or two and still make the time. Many people, for instance might...
  16. Contrary to popular belief, prior to the...

    Contrary to popular belief, prior to the implementation of speed faults, there was not a massive problem with crazy riders on BN. Were there some?...yep. Are there still some? ...yep. Are they...

    Exactly Bikoman. Trying to fix a stupid rule with more rules just makes it worse.
  18. Ding, Ding, Ding!!! Winner!

    Ding, Ding, Ding!!! Winner!

    Keep in mind, these are volunteer non-paid positions and these folks have jobs, families, and probably horses to ride and care for. While extremely nice, personal responses to all letters, emails and...

    I think that is a valid point, but he also seemed to learn from that and has a very solid record going forward. My point was, some designers seem to never get it. That may be a lack of willingness,...

    In my opinion, a lot of it comes down to whether or not the CD/builder (often the same person at the lowest levels) values the lower levels or not.

    We often talk about empathy at the higher...
  22. Same argument used at multiple heights to justify...

    Same argument used at multiple heights to justify gutting the lower levels. My example was the person said anything under 3' and I once heard arguments about anything under training. It's BS. If you...
  23. All through this thread, I keep thinking of a...

    All through this thread, I keep thinking of a well known course builder who used to say back in the '90's (when BN was just starting to show up at recognized events) how we shouldn't have BN, how...

    There are plenty of situation where a rider might exceed the maximum "time fault speed" and not be dangerous. There is no need to penalize every rider for the handful that might truly be dangerous.
  25. In my opinion, this is a result of a bad rule...

    In my opinion, this is a result of a bad rule enacted many years ago -- speed time faults for the lower levels. Someone decided that penalizing the lower levels for going too fast would make the...
