    Default Buenos Aires Nations Cup this year

    There is a write up in the current COTH. I found it rather interesting that only three nations fielded teams. The Argentines had two, the US had one, and IIRC the Canadians were the other.

    The Brazilians who are next door and will be hosting the next Olympics, didn't bother to send a team. Not sure why this distresses me , but it does. Of course it's really none of my business, but it just seems that they could have made the effort to support horse sports in South America.

    That particular show is SO freakin expensive, not funded, hard to get to (and back from) and not that "real" in terms of competition/ height.

    There is a reason so many of our riders (and I'm including Canadians) use that as their first Nations Cup experience. The teams that go are usually rich ammies, using BA as a stepping stone to the "real" classes/ teams.

    It definitely serves it's purpose but anyone looking like a hopeful for the Rio games has already outgrown BA.
