Re: [RC] Riding Cavalry - Barbara McCrary

I have been stunned by scenes of vehicles driving along with the
competitors, spraying the horses with water and offering sustenance to the
riders.  To me this is NOT endurance riding and I'm saddened to see FEI
rides disintegrate into such events.

Have endurance rides in 25, 50 and 100 miles -- but the horse and rider
are
a team.  No pit crews.  That's what I said, NO pit crews.

Bonnie, impose a "time window" with a scoring system based on condition of
the horse rather than making it a race and you have a sport called
"competitive trail riding". One of the challenges of CTR is the rider
having
to do everything -- it's exhausting!

You did cause some neurons to connect for me, however...

I would love to see FEI and international competitions conducted purely as
cavalry events. How fast would that get rid of the "jockeys"? >g<
