RE: [RC] [RC]FEI determination of abuse - Karen Standefer

I think before passing such harsh judgment, one should read the whole
document, and in particular the "Sanctions" section (beginning at 4.7.6 on
page 27).  And, also realize that the rider didn't get to see what we all
saw on the video during the event.  She was on the horse!  And, she was
tired.  And, the adrenalin was running.   Yes, she probably made a poor
judgment call.  But, it was a split second call and I'm positive she regrets
it, hindsight being 20/20.  Jeez, louise............she's got 30 years
competitive history and not a blemish on her whole career.  Give her the
benefit of the doubt!  

The document actually gives a lot of insight as to what was going through
her mind at the time.  And, she had absolutely NOTHING to gain by finishing
the course.  

My we can be a harsh bunch!  I certainly hope those throwing stones don't
ever find themselves in a similar position!
