    Purplnurpl - I'm replying to your message about not the score but the place.

    Fairly common, Poltroon. Fences with pins are jumps that meet the designer's criteria for an FP fence -- which could be big oxers, jumps in combinations, etc. I have volunteered at several XC venues...

    I agree the deaths of both horse and rider MUST be thoroughly and completely studied and examined. Interviews conducted and all aspects of the incidents recorded. Not saying info gathered has to be...

    This seems like a reaction to a political problem and not necessarily about the frangible pin. I think it's about protesting and the annoyance thereof. Just sayin'.

    ASTM is not the same as the British as I understand it. ASTM is an engineering standard for materials with purported safety properties. The British standard is industry specific. I do not know which...

    I think the testing standard being changed is the culprit, as Equibrit posted - I tried to make sense out of that....

    What a perfectly wonderful vision, Eventingcomplex. Having a good, active course designer walk your land with you will be of immense help. I am going to the course designers seminar at VA HT in May...

    I also wondered about the drop from 2012 to 2013.

    However I still think the number of falls for BN, N, and T are too high. These are categorically described as introductory tests in nature and...

    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...
