    NBC doesn't "give" us anything. Airtime is purchased for a lot of money. I am grateful for their coverage even if it was somewhat watered down, and I'm super grateful that no falls of horse or rider...

    They covered it because they were paid to cover it. I thought it did exactly what it set out to do - explain and humanize the sport. The On Demand coverage supplied the details for those familiar...

    The horse was purchased as a competition horse, not a pasture ornament. Obviously it is a full court press to get him back to his job, but the TPF crew isn't stupid. Far from it!

    It's not easy to explain eventing to John Q. Public because its rules are oretty complicated. Sports like bull riding and jumpers are way easier to grasp. You're on the bull, you're off the bull. You...

    A couple of questions/observations.

    Bornfree - they do get sponsors agreed. Samantha is very good at that. My disagreement is that the sponsorship money goes to prize money that in effect is earmarked for their own riders. I suppose I...

    Disagree totally. Yes, they give some $ earmarked for cash prizes. In return, the organizer provides seating/tent/ golf carts for them. Even return? Don't really see the event getting much. Color...

    "Professional" eventers choose this career path. They are not forced into it. Are there any other careers that change their basic rules, philosophy and structure so that someone who wants to make a...
