    No, that's what YOU said, in post 531. All I posted were facts about the Maryland Hunt Cup and what I remember/ witnessed of the steeplechase portion of Olympic eventing in '96. Could be I'm not...

    If the sport is safer now -- and the FEI report I linked to in the eventing thread indicates that it is -- then the changes are good for the sport. It's just too bad that the changes were detrimental...

    I guess you missed videos of the horses jumping up over the fences then. :lol:
