Re: Re: [RC] Changes to FEI rules, from an Australian perspective. Part - Leonard.Liesens

Your reaction is very weird, Truman. In other post would you have a bazooka to point to the FEI, you would use it. And here, you agree... This is not cool, thousands of horses are loosing their qualification, no problem, let's they start all over again. This is not in the interest of the welfare of the horse.

FEI is the body serving the other NF, making possible international competitions. Like FIFA for football. But we also have UEFA(european federation for football), and this could happen as well in equestrian if FEI 'bite the bullet and stand firm'.

The drivers license age went up some time back from 16 y.o. for an

unrestricted license to 18 for an unrestricted license. Who did this

really impact - people from 16 to 18 no one else. Of course there was a

lot of yelling, screaming and gnashing of teeth. Now it's running

smoothly. Any time such a change is made - there will be impacted

people in the transition. I expect in the long run it is a good change

for the FEI and in the best interest of the horses and they will just

have to bite the bullet and stand firm.
