    Running is their JOB? They CHOOSE to keep going...because they understand that it is how they earn their position in the community????? Wow...and what kind of LEADERS are we...???? Because these world class horses will follow us anywhere....does that give us the right to push them to their absolute limits...because it is their JOB and we are their LEADERS?  If my horse (friend, partner) falters because of my lack of ethical leadership...I am embarrassed and ashamed in the eyes of my horse...ask his forgiveness and try to do better by him next time.
    "They have to uphold their part of the deal or all bets are off"?? And our part of the deal is only to make sure they are well cared for when not competing??...What is our "part of the deal" when we are riding them??...competing via their "wings" for our own ego gratification?  Their wings are no good to us if our egos, and lack of compassion cause the sky to be taken away (that is a quote from somewhere)
    I too am out of here..this is not a "community" of which I wish to be a part.
