If the ride is dual sanctioned I would pay the extra money to enter as an FEI ride. The file a protest with FEI that they are NOT following FEI rules and should loose their sanction.
I know right! To make matters worse, the actual event we are fronting up for is a FEI event as well. But....I still have been told I must comply with Australian Endurance Vetting rules.
I have noticed one downside to teaching Comanche to trot. When we are riding out sometimes, he will drop into a trot, but I just have to give him a little more contact with the bit, and then he will drop into the running walk again.
