Re: Re: Dance Line
Even though it is YOUR life, endurance riding is OUR sport. When horses
are overridden, or have to be treated, or even die at rides, it is not only
the rider that is going to "live with the consequences", it's everybody
involved in the sport (to a certain degree). So, while I'll can't possibly
care less what you do with YOUR life, I am immeasurably concerned about the
welfare of our amazingly generous horses, and that of our sport.
