Temperament I can see. But how do you determine in a FOAL that the he has passed on his robust work ethic?
Wouldn't you have to wait until they are under saddle to make that determination?
Don't listen to anyone else!!

And it's not like this is some new rule that no one knew about. Why wasn't Eric protesting and threatening to...

All of the top Jumper riders had...
He won a silver in Beijing for team show jumping.
