President's public letter:

The letter above is QUITE telling! The judging at this past summer's Olympics was very disappointing. I watched the main rides and was very surprised with the end scores. Anky did NOT give a Gold Medal performance, not in the least. The Athens' Olympics wasn't much better.
Hopefully we'll see more resignations coming in and the entire sport taking a turn for the better! This over-flexed, hollow backed, tense horses with riders bouncing around like spider monkeys on their backs should NOT be winning, anything.
