    Given the characteristics of the lampooned group, it seems highly unlikely that many of them support dressage anyway.

    Why not perpetuate the myth that dressage is just for a bunch of elitist DQs ?

    Actually there are many of us "down here" who have supported the USET and general USOC for decades. I personally know many folks who joined the USDF when Ms Haddad was just a twinkle in her parents' eyes. At least half of those folks are at a minimum R level judges and are active in the USDF community. Granted I am not one of the high rollers, but my money has been accepted happily.

    One of the hard lessons I had to learn early on is words and actions have consequences. I closed more than a few doors on my own by a lack respect for those around me.

    Free speech cuts both ways. I am free to make comments knowing I may will offend at least individual each time. Sometimes it is necessary, sometimes it isn't.
    Simply put, I will remember this thread when the next USET letter arrives.

    The joys of free speech, I tried to watch SP multiple times because so many around me liked it. Never cared for it myself.

    You and I have differing tastes and opinions - makes the world interesting.

    Am I to understand that if Catherine had opted to tap-dance or juggle instead of doing a stand-up routine (which I didn't watch past the first minute because I didn't find it amusing) that the $160,000 would NOT have been raised?

    I don't know how the fund-raiser worked, but you would have a hard time convincing me that the donations were in any way tied to this performance.

    Perhaps someone should survey the donors for the benefit of future fundraisers.

    Wouldn't surprise me if it loosened up some wallets.

    I found it very funny!! You ladies need to get out from behind your computer and maybe raise some money yourselves! I think it took a lot of guts for her to get up there to do this!! Many others also put themselves on stage( other team members) to raise money. Have to say Catherine's was one of the better ones! Instead of sitting in your chairs complaining about others put your efforts towards more important things affecting our world!

    so it is your opinion that Christians do not ride dressage? what a bizarre assumption

    It is also quite possible that some people donated simply because it was a benefit event and not because of the skit involved.
