    All I can say from a smurf standpoint, is if they are going to run the FEI the way the USEF runs, run away.

    Since when does DOC speak for the USEF in such matters? One would the USEF vote would be a matter for their Board to decide. HAS the Board decided?

    I have to say that what I see here is a ticket of the old boys who want the FEI to go back to doping days with no spotlight on things like rollkur. The folks who think that the Ludger Beerbaum attitude is what we need. You know the one--if you don't get caught, what you do must be okay. Run the Federation for the professional athletes and not for the horses. Talk the kind of talk that quiets the masses, but don't actually DO anything.

    Did you notice that Holmberg also considered DOC for his 1st vice president? Makes a point that DOC puts his team coaching as his first priority. Sounds as if Holmberg had decided against him for that reason, but Rottinghuis bit. Or that's the spin the Holmberg camp seems to be putting on the Rottinghuis announcement.
