    There is a huge difference between questioning what the sport of eventing can do to help prevent similar injuries to horses in the future, and accusing a rider who has just lost her partner of...

    It isn't about the cost of rehabbing the horse. Read the updates ... The horse's owner, Emily, had made arrangements to send him somewhere for retirement. The decision to euthanize was made due to...

    If you are replying to my comment, perhaps I worded it poorly ... I should have said "it is absolutely possible to rehab a suspensory IN SOME CASES" but if you read the next sentence I wrote, I said...

    It's a damn shame that Dambala's rider was required to spend the day doing damage control and justifying her decision, rather than reflecting on the times that she had with him, because she was being...

    As I understood this topic, the posters wanting more information were wanting the riders/owners to provide specifics ... In other words, rather than saying the horse "has a minor injury" or "isn't...

    No hospital in the US is allowed to deny needed medical care based on the patient's inability to pay. It is the law.

    St Jude's does some great things for their patients, but their model simply...

    I agree, the FEI wants to work toward doing away with the CCI format altogether and make their new "spectator friendly" CIC format with XC last the new norm. I could see it eventually going in the...

    I think a lot of vagueness is due to the inevitable second-guessing that would occur on social media by people who are not privy to all the details of the situation. If Horse Y has soft tissue...

    My current guy is an Appendix gelding ... His AQHA name is absolutely awful! I like to keep their registered names if they are decent, but I just couldn't bring myself to enter anything named "Fat...

    About what am I lying? Differing in opinion from someone else does not constitute a lie.

    :rolleyes:
    Ok, so "every day" was a teensy bit of hyperbole. It might only be every third day or so.

    Thanks for keeping it classy, with the name-calling and all.

    It seems to me that when it comes to cops, it is somehow "acceptable" to judge the morality of the entire profession based on a few bad actors, much more so than with other professions or groups of...

    We get it, OP. You don't like cops. Is it really necessary to start a new thread on the same topic every day?

    Even if not having a drop score does encourage riders to start on course with a more conservative approach, it will certainly encourage them to continue on after multiple refusals or on a tired horse...

    This made me giggle (bolding is mine).

    I think that this individual's reply is all the information the OP needed.

    I think you've solved the age old question of how or make equestrian sports marketable to the general public! Maybe we should add some cheerleaders and a halftime show for good measure too :)

    In that case, we should probably change the name to "extreme adventure hardcore horse riding" or something ... Think of the reality show and YouTube video possibilities! "She rides a horse out into...

    Seriously!

    When I tell a non-horsey person what I compete in with my horses, I generally end up having to give a brief explanation of what eventing is. I am quite sure I would still have to do...

    Agree. Problems like these can be kind of fun to figure out, at least for nerds like me.

    It's too bad this sort of thing can't just be shared as a fun thread along the lines of, "Are you smarter...

    I don't really have a problem with the changing of the "star" levels in and of itself, because aside from the addition of a new FEI level at the lower end of the spectrum it would theoretically...

    The funny thing, this whole thing appears to be packaged largely as a way to address safety concerns related to horse falls on XC ... And yet there isn't a single thing on that list that actually is...

    Sounds like it's about time for eventing to form our own international governing organization and bid good riddance to the FEI.

    It would almost certainly mean losing the Olympics, but that would...

    Yes to this. It seems like there is a lot of discussion on here about how we have never been as good as the Europeans, their system has always been so much better, their horses have always been...

    But the data from any research in other sports can't be applied directly to equestrian air vest use. Accidents in different sports have different predominant mechanisms of injury, plus as discussed...
