Re: [RC] Pull Codes - Stewart, Carrie

I don't mean to be a downer but everything comes back to money and ego.
Riders who have more to loose (business and clients) are the ones who
feel stigmatized about the pull codes.  As for me, I have no quams about
pulling or being pulled for lameness if my horse takes a mis-step or is
having a bad day and not recovering as well as he should.  I would
rather have my riding partner to ride with tomorrow.  I ride because I
like to and because my horse likes to.  We are a partnership and if one
of us is not feeling good and needs the time off then so be it.  If you
want to snicker and gossip about me that I never have a horse that
finishes or that I override my horse then so be it.  The vet, my horse
and I (and God) know the truth... that is all that matters. Yes I care
about doing well, I am very competitive by nature but I am not willing
to pay a price, other than hard work,  to get it.

His neigh is like the bidding of a monarch,
and his countenance enforces homage.
He is indeed a horse...
-- William Shakespeare
