Re: [RC] dead horse - Heidi Smith

That's a matter of opinion, and I respectfully disagree. On your own
property in private, yes. If you choose to participate in an Endurance
Ride sanctioned by AERC, you give up your right to privacy.....if you're
not willing to do that in order to provide valuable information that
contributes to the welfare of the horse, DON'T GO!

Yes, a rider gives up a degree of privacy by going to the ride.  But once
the horse is deemed healthy and released from the venue, there is NO WAY you
can enforce intrusion into that rider's privacy.  By all means ASK for
voluntary reporting, and make a big issue of it.  But the concept of
DEMANDING details what goes on at home for the next 2+ weeks is simply not
workable.  Your idealism is commendable--but Scott, Annie, etc. are right
that an unenforceable rule is worse than no rule at all.
