Re: [RC] Why does the FEI have new qualification rules? (was: FITS 60...) - rides2far

This would only be a good argument if the FEI actually does ensure 
that all FEI sanctioned rides ARE of the correct distances and run 
under their rules.  I haven't seen any evidence of that.
Another example of this unnecessary red tape:  We could have brought
Josie's own horse to do the FEI 50 *if* we'd had records proving he had
been given 2 flu shots 3 weeks apart, within the last 6 months. *Have* to
be administered by a vet and the lot number and something or other else
noted in writing. Makes sense to avoid outbreaks...right? *Except* there
are plenty of non-FEI horses on the same grounds using the same water
with no proof of all that.  Cade had been given his flu shot within the
last 6 months. He did not need 2 since he'd been given the 2 shot series
several years ago...but that didn't fill the requirements.  Looks like
he'll be getting the series if she still wants to pursue the Young
Rider's ride. More unnecessary expense.
