or F) have your dad or mom be an international rider.
It's ALOT of hard work, and really expensive. I have a friend who competes in international level events (2 stars) and his family is really well off in the money buisness. But he's also a good rider, who trains horses and works well with them.
I think to be a FEI level rider, you have to understand the horse and every aspect of it's care and the sport. You have to know the horse inside and out.
