    Default Humble Initiative: Sham Attempt by USEF to a Meeting

    Ms. Tauber, our USEF President, through Ms. Keating, our USEF In House General Counsel refuses to meet about pressing issues in relation to our sport and in relation to all USEF Members. If GR609 is not changed to be in accordance with USOC governances, USEF Members livelihoods continue to be at risk. Also, my proposal for necropsy/toxicology requirements for ALL animal deaths at USEF sanctioned competitions MUST be addressed. Out of the 16 animals that died at USEF competitions last year, only one was front and center on the internet and in the press. Please join my cause, sign my petition and do not be afraid of the upper management of the USEF any longer.

    No.

    What must be addressed is what exactly was in that syringe that killed your pony Humble.

    You know the answer. The truth starts there.

    Seriously. You are posting about the death of an animal at a horse show...

    Words fail me.

    I'm all for mandating that necropsy and toxicology reports must be accessible to the USEF for horses dying at their shows. But having a clean tox report certainly doesn't absolve anyone from the accusation that they killed their horse with a banned substance.

    I feel like w should be allowed to have our red thumbs back on threads containing certain key words like "mandarino," parelli," or "jill burnell" among others.

    I haven't read Mandarino's petition/proposal.

    But it IS possible for her to have been wrong in the way she did things at Devon and also right about the USEF demanding timely necropsies/blood draws of any horse who keels over at a show.

    Duh, you guys.

    So submit a rule change proposal. You have nine lawyers, right? Have one of them look up the process for you.

    Hoist by "her" own petard? I'm feeling 'groundhog day' here. Maybe groundhog day for narcissists! I think an emoticon of a red ribbon, tied to a rear appendage, might be most appropriate for repeat offenders who are known for dangerous ring behavior. Yes, seriously discussion is the call of the day. Isn't gonna happen when the inmates try to run the prison.

    This.
    If all nine lawyers are busy with other things you can probably find another who is willing to go on payroll.

    Kid having panic attacks is irrelevant.

    You must need a new shovel. The one you've been using must be pretty worn out by now.
