    I'm referring to a screening primarily to detect those individuals without the 'dead giveaway' signs of head injury (loss of consciousness, altered level of consciousness, amnesia, disorientation,...

    I'm not advocating for the removal of the current fall rule. I just don't think that a new stricter fall rule is in order mandating that anyone who's had a fall of any kind needs to be completely...

    This is a bit off topic, but so far it seems that helmets like the Devon Aire one mentioned and others that claim to provide a higher level of protection don't have any actual data to indicate that...

    An evidence based system for screening riders before allowing them to "return to play," i.e. get on another horse and compete, is an excellent, common sense suggestion that would actually improve...

    So do we mandate all riders that fall off or have a horse fall must be transported to the ER for evaluation, regardless of whether they believe themselves to be seriously injured? What if the ER...

    Exactly. Waredaca had a "corner" on N in May ... It was set so that the rider could ride it as though it were a true corner, but the jumpable face was much wider than a true corner and it was really...

    I came back to eventing a few years ago after not having competed for about 10 years, and it does seem that BN, N and T courses are noticeably more technical now than they were back then. It also...

    But where do we draw the line? For example, what if a rider is kicked by a horse a few hours before he/she competes and sustains some sort of injury? Or what about a rider competing with an injury...

    It is extremely unlikely that ANY vest ... Old-school Tipperary, ASTM approved, air vest, EXO, etc ... Is going to have any ability to prevent or reduce the severity of cervical spine injuries such...

    I could potentially see the "Modified" division being more popular than PT among certain people ... Namely, those that don't want or intend to make the jump to Prelim but would like a little more...

    Was the business relationship ever officially "severed"? Or was it just kind of gradually phased out and allowed to fizzle away with the realization that most serious eventers and competitive riders...

    I just don't see it ... I highly doubt that safety is the first thought in the majority of trainers' minds when they reach for that syringe. I'm just not buying it.

    That the horse will be fresh...

    So even if all drugs were legal as long as they were administered by a vet, what will stop people from obtaining their own drugs from less legitimate sources and medicating their horses themselves? ...

    So why not suspend the owner from showing ANY horses, not just the one with the positive test, for a period of time?

    I do realize the more than likely suspending the trainer will just lead to...

    Rather than suspending the horse itself, as that could cause it to be complicated if the horse is sold prior to the test coming back positive, why not suspend all the connections that were involved...

    I have to say, referring to a dressage competitor the author doesn't like as "the forces of darkness" made me lol.

    That was the original order, but Holly Woodhead was eliminated on review for missing a flag, which meant that only 2 British riders completed.

    USA not only completes a team but finishes in 3rd!

    And Ingrid is just amazing.

    The fact is, a very well known, successful horse testing positive is more newsworthy than a mediocre, relatively unknown horse from a small time barn testing positive, so I think it's perfectly fair...

    Better living through pharmacology for EVERYBODY!!! Really, we are just concerned about safety!

    I agree that it's an awful lot to ask of any horse, especially one that is still relatively new to international competition. Not that I think that Colleen should have turned down the opportunity,...

    On the bright side, the "horse" is actually pretty cute with his front end over the jump despite the rider's, umm, death grip on his face!

    I love his "wimpy dressage horse" comment ... At least he has a sense of humor about it! Hope he and the horse are both ok.

    Glutamic acid/glutamate is just an amino acid, and is naturally occurring in foods and can also be synthesized by the body. Its use as a precursor to GABA is only one of many potential uses in the...
