    Read about the Schumacher case and immediately thought of eventing. As a safety issue, I can't find anything beyond the journalist's claim, so it does make one wonder how valid it is. On the other...

    I don't quite understand all this uproar over the proposed speed increases.
    It seems to me that the increases are pretty small -- 10-50 mpm -- and I have a hard time believing many (or any) people...

    Ack, I love it! What a good girl! We are so lucky to have these horses, aren't we?!

    What comes after advanced- a little brag

    I have an OTTB who I've owned for 17 years, got as a 4 y.o. and brought up through the levels to advanced.

    I wish I had answers, I don't. But I do want to point out, that for as much as eventing has changed and evolved over time, it has ALWAYS, ALWAYS been an "extreme sport."

    It does seem like doing away with the I and A levels, which are by far the smallest classes anyways, would go a long way toward making the AECs more moveable. There are courses built through prelim...

    This course seems like a standard-issue CMP design, IMO.
