    I love, and have participated in, many different styles of riding and find merit in what makes all of them great.

    In eventing, what makes this discipline great is the spectrum of ability it encompasses AND the level of fitness it demands. That's all. It is NO BETTER that any other discipline. But as other disciplines should be admired for their merit, so should eventing.
    Well said! And I'll say EVENTING ROCKS!!!!

    I've actually done a LOT of low level eventing. And produced an eventing horse for a young girl who just recently won a year-end award for eventing performance. Does that 'qualify' me to post here? Sorry, but I have a right to post here as much as anyone else.

    I love your posts, Alison - Always very knowledgable and thought out. It was only the comments on this and the other video that seemed to discount other disciplines that I didn't like. Please keep posting lots :]

    I agree with Allison

    I've watched this video before. Amazes me every time. Makes me want spring to come faster so I can get back out on the XC course!

    Me too! I am sick of this snow already and getting tired and sour of the Indoor Arena.

    I can do only so much arena work, but wont get anything out of it as I would hacking. Speaking of which - you need to get on FB so we can talk :) I have things to share :)

    And Allison - you post whatever you want :)

    Both of my comments about the fitness level of event horses were on EVENT threads. If you don't agree, it is your right. But, don't go onto a certain discipline's thread and then complain about what is said regarding the participants love of their sport.

    My thread about the frisky horses at the event inspection was actually meant to be "tongue in cheek" and most saw that as such. Unfortunately, some (most of whom do not even ride english) thought I was "dissin" their horses. That was not what I intended at all, and I apologised for having made that impression. So, please don't go "here we go again...." on yet another EVENT thread.

    *sigh* - I didn't complain about what was said on the other thread. I simply compared the independant mind of event horses to that of a cutting horse - Because someone mentioned that only eventers need that quality and that is why they were being so fractious on the ground. All I was doing was adding another angle. I didn't mention event horses fitness OR take offense.

    I saw where that thread ended up and all I did here was agree with Smrobs - Again I didn't take any offense, or complain about what has been said.

    I guess I won't try to pay you a complement again - All you saw was an attack.

    I have a great respect for eventing and have done a fair bit of lower level eventing - just because I didn't choose to pursue it and it isn't now my discipline of choice doesn't mean I can't post here.

    Wild_Spot - no one said you cannot post here - you just chose to take my words that way. I didn't say "Wild_Spot, you have nothing to contribute so you have no right", nope - but that's how you chose to take it.

    I believe, my words were :

    If you guys have nothing to contribute to the sport of Eventing, and have nothing to add about the video posted - then don't say anything at all.
    Where - in those words, does it say you have no right to post anything in the eventing thread?

    Again - that is how you decided to take it.
