    Sport in New Zealand is funded by the government and the lottery. The passing-the-hat, junk-mail method of funding is more a US thing.

    Rather than withholding funds from NZ eventing, funding for...

    This is an historically accurate idea. Very much in the spirit of the original old-guard dead-cavalry-guy tradition.

    Back in the old days, we had the weight rule. The horse/rider combo had to...

    Food for thought, for those with an appetite: How does this compare to the Jeremy Clarkson situation? While legions of Top Gear fans petitioned and harangued for the BBC to preserve the presenter's...

    Oh dear! Massive apologies.

    Sometimes I start thinking that I'm on the intelligent spectrum of homo sapiens sapiens, but then I realize that I'm not really so sapiens after all.

    Apologies for your state of shock. That's not what I was saying.

    Um, let's not get carried away.

    I was deliberately using humorously euphemistic language. The idea is to call attention to the action, not minimize it. And it worked with you, I see.

    Well, you're the lawyer. :D

    If there is legal wrangling in the works, then I think it's very odd that AN is freely admitting that he took it upon himself to reposition the vet. One would be...

    Then why isn't ESNZ saying this?

    If ESNZ took the physical assault -- admitted to by AN -- seriously, AN would be out of the program pending various legal charges and investigations.

    But this...

    The only thing AN needs is a good horse.

    He'd do just fine never riding for ESNZ again. ESNZ can't stop him from winning Burghley, Badminton, and so on.

    The articles say that AN hasn't signed the athlete agreement. I'm not sure that he 'won't' sign it. One article said something to the effect that he needs to sign it to come back to the team but...

    This is stupid posturing on both sides. ENZ doesn't look any better with their childish return-to-play policy.

    As for the 'assault' -- well, what if this is about horse welfare? All sides agree...

    This is not an unusual personality profile of someone who is outstanding in a competitive endeavor. It takes drive, and that kind of drive is just not in the normal range of human behavior.

    The footing is supplied by one of the big companies, I forget which one.
