    I understand the point that Reed was making about bone healing.

    However, I'd also like to say -- again -- that the Brands are super, super nice people. The eventing community is lucky to have...

    Given the horse/rider combo's record at the ** level, I'm hoping this plan isn't overly ambitious. A healing curve is a difficult add-on to a learning curve.

    But you're going to find this more often in major college sports than just about anywhere else. Some unis treat all athletes equally; others have a big divide between the major sports and the...

    As the membership and supporters of USEA, is this something that could or should be re-instated with an initiative from the membership?

    Could you elaborate on this?

    (And I totally understand if you don't want to. Thanks for all you've done for equality in eventing. :))

    Quickness? If a clavicle fracture requires surgery, it's done shortly after injury, with some exceptions, like if the fracture is still open after several months. Otherwise, if skin is broken or...

    I would hope that a physician finds the best way to put everyone's collarbones back together. Otherwise, they should face hefty lawsuits and loss of licensure.

    Guess who else competed with a...

    What is an 'ecological approach' to eventing? I'm having visions of recycling, leave-no-trace and Woodsy Owl. Maybe you meant to use a different term?

    When any rider has two serious falls that close together, it's a cause for concern. Even if rider isn't the self-reflective type, everyone around them should be asking questions and seeking answers....

    But if we are to accept that all horse falls are serious and, as such, are a serious factor in both horse welfare and eventing safety, to whom is it really 'fair' to convert a safety/welfare issue to...

    I know this is slightly OT but, after re-reading DW's article, I realized there was something that wasn't clear to me.

    Can someone fill in for me the general scenario of AW's fall? I know she had...

    So her air vest didn't deploy BEFORE she hit the ground.

    But is she saying that it did not deploy AFTER? Presumably her horse stood up, and therefore broke the lanyard, which would have caused...

    No. There was also warm-up.

    FWIW, in humans, catastrophic metabolic failures (like heat stroke, which doesn't necessarily relate to environmental heat at all, or cardiac arrest) often occur in...

    You can't possibly believe that.

    A horse is galloping on an XC course at a UL speed and has a catastrophic cardiovascular event. Yes, a cardiovascular event can happen anywhere, but, in this...

    It does matter as a qualifier.

    If you secure team qualification for Rio 2016, then you can plan your next year accordingly. If not, you worry about ranking lists and points and who's ranked...

    Team USA sends the A team to the B game.

    The only thing that matters is bringing home the gold (read: qualifying for Olympics), so let's hope that USA can finish a team for the first time in ages.

    Quite the opposite. I have plenty of compassion for the dead and injured in our sport, both equine and human.
