Wow, I think people are taking competition to dangerous extremes these days, not just the dressage stars like Anky but in wp and every other arena too. I think there needs to be a major house cleaning with all of those jusdes that have been around for years and years and manage to go bling for those few top riders who are willing to grease the palm a bit to get better marks and get away with some serious no nos. This is ridiculous and goes against the training principles of any discipline.
I would gladly be the first to walk out in the iddle of a class of those big wig dressage stars and throw down a yellow card to each of them, and then laugh at them for making such idiots of themselves. Then I would tie their chins to their chests and make tham walk around like that so they could see how it feels.
Yes I know a bit extreme and over dramatic, but this kind of stuff steams me to no end. I am glad the FEI is looking into stopping this ridiculous practice.
