Re: [RC] USA WEC Selection Question - Joe Long

In the past i have allowed others to ride my horses in Endurance Rides even 
when they had never attempted one.  In an event like the WEC when i had 
trained along w/ others of the Team and it was decided by someone not a part 
of my Team that someone else should ride my horse i would no longer be a 
part of the Team.  They had their chance and if for whatever reason they did 
not have the horse for that day, thats the way the cookie crumbles and the 
dice roll.  Nobody ever said its easy did they?

Consider me selfish.  Consider me  unpatriotic.  Consider me a non-team 
player.  Consider me whatever you wish,  but if my Team meaning my horse and 
myself are not selected then count us both out.  Thats my opinion and i'm 
sticking to it.  ts

You make a good point:  endurance riding is a team sport --
horse/rider team.  When you have teams of horses/riders as they do in
FEI, you have a "team of teams."  I think it would be good if it was
managed on that basis.
