[RC] Horse safety - Jim Holland - Onefarmgirl

I was so pleased to read in the "Convention News" of the great steps taken 
toward safeguarding the welfare of our horses.   It sounds as if our 
hard-working representatives have done a terrific job channeling the emotion, 
intellect, and spirit of a few thousand individualists into a new model of 
.....  watchfulness for our horse partners.   This was such an important 
start to address a painful but truly crucial issue!

Not to minimize the role of many who obviously worked hard to obtain this 
strong beginning, but it would be hard to overstate the positive impact Jim 
Holland has had on this issue, and in turn on our sport.   Jim was *the* key 
guy in bringing this issue forward, in speaking out clearly, simply & 
doggedly.   He refused to be ignored & endured criticism & complacency to 
keep this important issue on 'page one'.

Congratulations Jim, and thanks.  I think you just won and BC'd the Big Ride.
