Re: [RC] Rc .RC .: WEC Trails - hans buckel

I do agree with you Nik,there is no doubt that UAE is a step forward (or many),and only individual efforts(plus luck and etc.etc) can have sometimes good results.A example of that is Spain.Is difficult to compete against the willing,the money and all the efforts that Sheik Mohammed is putting on this sport. The game is that way,and I think is a great thing for our sport,but I dont think I can compete with them in number of horses ,prep of them,in the vet aspect they have available.The only gap we could imagine we could try to decrease is the technical and horsemanships aspects.The rest is trying to win against Ferrari very difficult but not impossilble."""""Great challenge""""""

We do have hills Steph ,in fact  when we were originally  preparing for the WEc Selection way beyond the FEI CoC requirment the original "WEC' trail was  alot tougher .Then the CoC after which came the double CoC .

With heat and humidity  [ and of course reading Margeret Sleeper's ordeal come to mind : lightnings ! ] ,the OC was well advised to do away with hills .

But as I say in my previous thread ,Champions are in the MIND .Let us all remember that ,hills ,no hills ,flat ,rain ,lightning or mud ,let us not take the glory out of the winners .I think the UAE Team can take all comers anywhere .They have come  a long way and we have a lot to catch up .

In retrospect America did very well at our WEC ,had Valerie kanavy being in the Team ,the discussions would have been very2 different . luck of the draw I would say .
