    There certainly was a lot of talk about it at the time, but IIRC, the MRs were turned to TEs because the fence was taken off the course partway through the division in response to the problems....

    In most cases, because people like the look. Sort of like how every horse is suddenly fly-sensitive and needs to wear a cute, piped, fringed, color-coordinated bonnet for all three phases. :rolleyes:

    Agreed. The PTB have tried changing qualifications to handle the rider/horse readiness factor, but you can only legislate so far.

    A little sidenote that probably is inconsequential but did stand out to me:
    I was looking back online at the two most recent rotational-fall deaths I can remember here in the U.S. (Mia Ericsson at...

    I agree that we could be doing more -- and doing the things we are doing better -- to improve safety within the sport, but I think the OP is wrong to say that "0" or "nothing" is being done to make...

    Kcmel -- I wish Plantation did that 2'3" level, too. That's definitely an important step between logs on the ground and BN. I think, in the past at least, the organizer felt it was just too much to...

    JP, I'm having trouble following your last two posts.

    In your response to me, it sounds like you'd like to see course builders make pretty/artistic/fancy/whatever BN fences. In the response to...

    For those criticizing this guy (who, by the way, is a course builder, not a course designer -- two different jobs), please read the entire article first. I feel like the quotes previous posters...

    Just can't imagine that with a 3-month-old baby. How awful. This is the kind of nightmare scenario I imagined after having a child myself that makes me wonder if I'll ever have the nerve (much less...

    Plantation flags the courses then runs the recognized levels Saturday and unrecognized Sunday over the exact same courses.
    One thing to consider for the June starter trials is that the annual XC...

    A little bump. Thanks to lots of people stepping up -- Pony Club moms, grandparents, grooms, horse husbands included -- we've happily got enough volunteers for Saturday now.
    But we still have very...

    From a safety standpoint, I like the idea that the people who would progress to the 4* portion not only have to be nominated in advance and pre-qualified at the 4* level, but they also have to...

    They just said on the live feed that High Kingdom kicked out in the stables and cut himself, and when they brought him out to warm up they realized it was more serious than they'd thought. He's gone...

    Related somewhat to these comments on fair-weather riders.

    About the boldface: Say what?!?!

    The savvy professional riders don't share the details of their horse's health issues in real-time. We may disagree about whether that's right or wrong, but that's...

    Yes, I can see issues in the photo; I think pretty much everyone posting can. But what I also can see is that I have no idea whether the horse pictured is the one involved in this fall. You have no...

    Fair enough, but that's not what happening here. This girl died on course, and what people are "pointing out" has nothing (as far as we know) to do with what she did or didn't do on course. This is...

    I'm sure a narrow, short-backed, high-withered 15.2H horse feels a lot different than a big-barreled, flat-withered 16H horse, but I still think - generally - the most significant difference between...

    I've been lying about my horse's height for 18+ years. I am clueless as to his actual height because every time I've tried to measure him he's acted goofy about the stick. So I've been guessing 16.2...

    Boyd and Crackerjack. I would really, really love to see this horse do well at Rolex in Colin Davidson's memory.
