    The local hunt hunts across my land (I'm a member of another hunt) but I wouldn't allow WEG or the Olympics. It's not the same.

    I would think there is a big difference in the hunt running hunter paces over land they have permission to hunt and getting people to give you permission to run the olympics over their land.

    I don't see how the FEI awarded the competition to an organization that didn't have the funding. That's just incompetence on the part of the FEI, or maybe the Canadians just paid off the right FEI...

    Wouldn't it be better to send that rider on one of their developing horses then? I don't see the benefit of sending a 13 year old 4* horse to a 3*.

    Definitely pre-hydrate. I learned from bike racing days that if you start hydrating after you start working then you are too late. I probably have 24 oz of water/energy drink down before I get on...

    I think the use of studs depends on the footing you are going over. For hunting my horses always have studs. The ground conditions are going to be unpredictable. With that said, I would never use...

    I have to agree on the grants that spending money on 4* horses to go to do 3* events seems like a bad use of limited funds. You have Manoir de Carneville (16), Harbour Pilot (13), Donner (13) and...

    It's a subjective sport. If you are going to ask when is tough too tough, have you also asked when is scoring too easy. I write this from the perspective of a mediocre dressage rider.

    The biggest problem is that organizations like the FEI, IOC, FIFA, etc. are such corrupt organizations.

    I use 4x4 for rails and use a router to round the corners. They provide a good whack for a careless horse but the rounded edges keep them getting cut.

    I also use barrels from the local car wash....

    That decision wasn't made last week. It was made when they decided to the CIC months ago. Like others I hate the CIC format. It removes a fundamental part of the eventing test. I was jump judging...
