Re: [RC] [RC] Tevis winners - D'Arcy Demianoff-Thompson

It's the man thing!  LOL!  Just kidding...however, I
do recognize that a lot of people that have negative
comments about horses are, in fact, scared of them! 
Very interesting!  Then there is the other half that
are scared of them but absolutely in love with them. 
I know a woman, in Florida, that runs a top dressage
facility with the top winning Arabian Mare - in
dressage.  You know what...she has never ridden a
horse a day in her life!  No kidding!  I was
absolutely floored when she told me that.  Her
knowledge, expertise, and ability to manage never
indicated that she had never been up on a horse -
EVER~

when I was a newspaper reporter,  had a running debate
with teh sports editor for 7 years about this very
subject. He thought the horse did all the work and
horse sports aren't TRUE SPORTS. 

I asked him about the olympics and said horse sports
have been part of the olympics since the time of the
ancient greeks. No comment from him. He said it was a
girl sport. I said, girls weren't allowed in the
olympics in ancient greece and weren't allowed to
compete on horseback in the modern olympics til when,
the 1970s???

I said what about auto racing, doesnt hte car do all
the work, the driver just sits there.

no comment

asked him about polo. Said it's got everyting that
otehr field sports do... it's got bats, an object to
hit, goals, referees, points...

Tried for all those 7 years to get him to ride a horse
with me.uhuh, he was SKEERED of them, hahahahaha
