RE: [RC] [AERCMembersForum] [Endurance Riding: News] FEI CoC for 2008 WEC - 10:40 and 12 months! - rides2far@xxxxxxxx

***I'm curious why they are doing this? Do they think it will weed 
out the "less fit".

If the horses in Malaysia are more used to the conditions than those 
coming from other parts of the world, where the fast COC times are 
easier to obtain, they might have a home court advantage when 
competing a tough extremely humid slow course. I guess one way to 
beat them is to make it where they cannot start. 

If I recall correctly, in the past the Malaysians were trying to get 
them to relax the previous, slower COC requirements for them, since 
they had to deal with such extreme conditions. What was their 
reaction to this new cut off? Dr. Nick...are you out there??
