    Plantation goes purple for Scubed

    In case you missed it on the Goodbye Scubed thread, we will be remembering Seema Sonnad at the Plantation Field Horse Trials this weekend, June 6 & 7.
    Her passing leaves a huge hole in eventing...

    A little bump and a big THANK YOU to those who have volunteered. A few people have said they are volunteering in honor of Seema, which is very, very cool.

    If you are local and think you might be...

    One idea to remember Seema

    Looking through old stories about Seema and her support of volunteering, I found this on Eventing Nation, dated December 2014:

    "In Seema’s mind, there’s always more than can be done to recognize...

    Kcmel: Plantation is having its annual XC schooling day on Monday, June 8. It's just a one-time option, but lots of people come with trainers to that.
    Plus, if you haven't already used the volunteer...

    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 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...

    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...
