RE: [RC] [Consider This] Endurance riders told to clean up theiract - Rebecca Hackworth

OK, the Equitation and Education absolutly.  Bring it on.....but the
dress code?  At FEI, I thought there was a dress code in place.  Or
is that only for the USA?

I like the idea of improving equitation A LOT. It makes me crazy to
see these pictures of horses at the international level with their
riders riding like a frozen sack of potatoes..yanking these poor
horse's heads straight up in the air and leaning back against their

Courage is being scared to death, but saddling up anyway. ~ John

The days of the "anything goes" dress code and riding style for
endurance riders may soon be a thing of the past.

Any old riding gear and tack and sloppy riding may well make way for
matching team clobber and smartened up athletes in the FEI's new
"Triple E" three-year plan for bringing the image of the equestrian
sport of endurance up to scratch.

But riders need not feel singled out - the image makeover will also
apply to officials and their support crew.

The sport's image is under discussion at the highest levels, and
delegates at a recent FEI Bureau meeting looked closely at
implementing a dress code for riders and their support crew. Under
the "Triple E" plan, the 'E' of the dress code comes under the
"Elevation of Endurance Image".
