Geez the Canadian Assoc sounds as bad as the Australia one! Change rules to suit a couple of people who has some weight to pull, and give the rest of us piss poor answers.
Have they allowed you to warm up in a double bridle under medium level over there?
We're now allowed to warm up for any level test including a prep, in a double - and hey guess what - that' for safety reasons too, because some horse's aren't controllable in a snaffle.
*raises eyebrow*
Why not give it all in, stuff tradition. Lets ride in tie downs, gigantic western style spurs with double bridles and draw reins, fully booted, tongue ties - why not just tape mouths shut to stop tongues coming out?

Ohhhh, I'm very curious -- where can I find out more about this incident?

I don't condone earplugs, by the way.

The horse spooked in the arena at the Olympics and it escalated into vertical rears, the poor man ended up having to leave the arena as his horse had just lost its head.

The new scuttlebutt is that its because there was a chemical reaction with the rain on the horse's hindquarters and tail *rolleyes*

For real?
The horse just blew his brain, it's a huge atmosphere even for a seasoned horse. Pretty simple to figure that one out :/

It doesn't even really benefit anyone safety-wise, since they're illegal in FEI competitions. Wonderful, let's show our horse in ear plugs then we have to take them out at a significant competition where the atmosphere is likely more charged, loud, and more apt to be scary. Really smart move there. That's so safe. Dull the noise at otherwise pretty quiet shows and then when it's loud we'll take out the ear plugs.

Interestingly, the horse started flipping out after the rain stopped (or at least eased up)...

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.
