I think Deltawave probably has a point--looking at the top ten riders, Sally's **** horse is recovering from an injury, Nina competes for Thailand, Hawley competes for Canada, and apparently Sinead got a different grant.
Why men outnumber women at the top of the sport is an entirely different question, though!
Where can we find a list of all the grants made to event riders since the last Olympics. Would the USEA have such? How about the USEF. One expects that all money spent by the USET Foundation would be recorded at the USEF, or at least one hopes that's the case.
Heck, I didn't know there was a special Mars training grant. Which body would administer it?
One assumes from the title of the Land Rover Grants that the USEF is expecting our 2012 Olympic Team to come from these horses and riders, along with others that it has funded
Sharon White was planning to take Rafferty's Rules to Burghley. She's female and would probably do as well as any of the less than top tier North Americans.
