Re: [RC] WEC Prices - Elizabeth Walker

Yep.  Too pricey for me.  As I said in another post, my sister and I were planning on going to part of it, as a vacation - right up until I looked at their ticket prices.  Now we are going to find somewhere else to go on vacation.  Too bad.

Hello,  The cost of bringing horses to the USA from abroad is always an issue and because this WEC is not sponsored by a Gov't shows the true costs of putting on an event of this caliber.
The cost to just go watch startled me.  Opening Ceremonies cost $150.  The cost to 'watch' the Endurance Event is $45. I don't know about most folks but i could go see Paul McCartney for that amount of money.  Never have i ever heard that you had to pay to go see the opening ceremonies of an endurance event.  Endurance has now hit the high roller league.
Is this progress or a set back, or just the way of the world?
