So if you and other riders are tired of everything in your sport being slanted towards hitting it, hitting it, hitting it and you'd like to be able to ride at the pace most suitable for you and your horses, consider forming national or multi-national associations modeled after AERC where the focus is on people and horses doing what they like, *just for the sake of doing it*, with NO pressure to prove themselves other than the pressure which they put on themselves. This would allow ride fees to be reduced (no FEI taking its cut) which might encourage more people to try the sport and maybe get hooked. ..



As mentioned, there are CEI and CEN competitions (and numerous CEN rides which do not engage FEI sanctioning). I think the point you make is essentially moot.
