Frankly, you're being utterly disingenuous about wanting make a valid comparison. The first few posts on this thread pointed out that this has been discussed ad nauseum on this forum. (And really, thanks for adding a bit more "nauseum" to that!) Her question was well answered by the end of the first page. You are obviously only interested in bombarding us all with your opinions about what eventers' training priorities should be, based on your own - NON-EVENTING - experience and opinions.
And no, since you are apparently a real stickler for having things quoted correctly, I neither said nor implied that "prepping" horses was a basic training METHOD, I said it was part of the VERNACULAR OF BASIC TRAINING METHODS - or perhaps, to use your own language, a very common cover-up for "holes" in the training of horses and riders in your sport.
Perhaps you could take your tsk-tsking back to the HJ board and lecture those folks about those holes instead?
