[RC] ridecamp reaction to Truman's comments - Cindy Collins

There's a part of me that feels sorry for you, Truman, seriously.  You
really don't get it and don't mean to get everyone cranked up (I hope)!  I
have to tell you that I agree 100% with Kim, Angie, and Kat.  My initial
reaction to your comments was fury that anyone would think that FEI is my
goal because I happen to love one day 100s.  I hate the whole FEI movement
and what I feel it's done to the AERC and endurance riding.  I am NOT
alone.  I, too, have talked with people who were big into that whole scene
and have walked away from it in disgust...It's not what we were founded
on.  And, if your critics are correct and SEDRA has an award called a "100
mile horse award" and gives it to a horse who has never done a one day 100
miler...that really upsets me.  It's bad enough to have people running
around saying they are endurance riders or advertising their horses as
endurance horses when they've done a couple of LD rides!  Cindy
