when will you stop fighting your AERC fight? Please be so kind as to accept
that there are thousands of endurance riders worldwide NOT organized in
AERC. A huge percentage of them is organized in federations working on a FEI
base, running events under FEI (or similar) rules. Your AERC rules don't
differ that much from FEI!
Concerning the Aussies: I am not sure that they are anti-FEI as you like
them to be. I know several of them personal - I met them at FEI rides, as I
did with a lot of your US riders. And you can be sure that if the media is
more and more involved and the US wants still to be part of the game, they
have to arrange with FEI. FEI is the WORLDWIDE head for horsey events, not
