    I'd love to see the footage. One person's 'eeek' is another's 'jumped in big, made up ground, scopey horse found the distance EASY on 1 less stride'.



    I totally disagree. Imho horses in pain...

    They used to televise Gatcombe CIC*** which I think is always run with the XC last, and riders going in reverse order etc. I can think of one high-profile rider who was 'going for it' in a major way...

    snoopy, yes, absolutely. Just awful all round, and a total ****storm that our sport does NOT need again.

    But whatever they might do would NOT be allowed... at an FEI event, absolutely nothing can be given to a horse without the officiating vets' knowledge and approval. There was a rather famous case of...

    I've seen it happen, too, at a 3-day event. Rider finished nicely (not flat out) after a good clear at a sensible pace, pulled up slowly, hopped off, started undoing girth etc... about 5 seconds...

    I've paid this subject quite a lot of attention, having done most of my 3-days over old Long Format courses (1* to 3*).
    I think it was Mark Todd who said that the horses feel just as tired after...

    I'm pretty sure that the horse died after the finish, not 'on course'.



    Sorry but I absolutely would not call that "very nearly a rotational fall". The horse just put down and stopped. His...

    Hmm, I have to disagree. I'm the same shape, the only place I put weight on is my hips and thighs. I was about a stone overweight (5'10", 11 stone.) I tried to lose it, for quite a long time, and my...

    I totally agree with this.
    Those saying WFP has a heavy top because he's so tall are wrong imho... he is surprisingly light for one so very tall, and don't forget how long his legs are! He's a true...

    This is absolutely right. And we shouldn't forget that this is what most riders would do anyway! WFP got the ride on a 3* new horse, Chilli Morning, last year. WFP is one of the most highly qualified...

    The qualification path for a horse/rider together is still open, all the way from lowest level to top level. Categories etc have NO bearing on that at all. This has caused a lot of confusion, because...

    Great, thanks. We have about 350 signatures, need a lot more really! Please spread the word everyone.

    eqsui, the 'going back to 1* level' is particularly badly thought out, I think. 2* maybe but 1* is too small for most Adv horses imho, and of course it impacts on the genuine 1* competitors...

    Thanks vineyridge. Yes, US signatures very very welcome. Many riders are being very unfairly impacted by this rule, for instance Tiana Coudray is just ONE MER at 3* short of being Category B, which...

    I am loving this thread. It's interesting, when the same subject is broached on HHO in the U.K. the insults REALLY fly, but not here (well, not much.) There's no 'it's your money, and if you enjoy...

    The way it was explained to me is this: a vest which is made up of small blocks/segments of foam will never be as good at dissipating force around the body (which is the whole point, obviously) as a...

    I think that's something adrenalin does, make time go mega-slowly when you're under extreme stress. It's very weird. Last time I had a car crash, I hit a patch of diesel and lost control, car spun...

    A fall is a fall. speed and trajectory differ, but afaik it is still all about dissipating the forces around the body so as to avoid injury. so, falling off a ladder and falling off a horse at speed,...

    I think there are fewer bounces around now, in the U.K. anyway. I started out over here at Novice level (does that equate to U.S. Training level?) in '88 and encountered plenty of bounces, including...
