I hate that eventers today are starting to think that the horses are disposable and don't listen to their needs as much. |
I get your point and I agree, and I am very saddened by that - but it isn't just Eventers as we all very well know.
I believe it is in any sport that is out there, Hunters, Jumpers, DQ's, and Eventing.
Just as Jim Wofford said - riders have crossed the line from it being a discipline and working together as a team, to riders who believe they can dominate the horse and force them beyond their capeabillities.
We see this domination even amongst us here.
