Think it could have been on purpose - just to give them an out?

More sophisticated drugs that won't test, or just "buying" the test results. They have already shown the world what they think of human children. I can't imagine there is any more regard for a horse or the concept of "sportmanship".*

Yep but they are not alone it this. The FEI seems to be walking hand and hand down the primrose path with them. Now I wonder since we were suppose to "stay engaged" - "*Our very presence over there was supposed to be such a positive influence in helping them learn "ethics", "morals" and "fairness..." *where is the outcry from AERC I. Where is the moral indignation against a potentially corrupt organization that has sold out? The silence is deafening.

Plato probably said it best when he said, "Good people do not need laws
to tell them to act responsibly, while bad people will find a way around
the laws."

A sad day for international endurance, but a sadder day for the AERC
since we insist on sticking our organizational heads in the sand.
