There are bad riders in EVERY discipline. I think they should be penalized as well.
Again, the fact that 95% of the Pentathletes cannot ride well is alarming. If you're going to string 5 sports together where one incorporates another living being, it should be treated with respect rather than a creature to hang on to, kick n' steer and hope for the best.
... ok, going to quit this thread before my blood pressure goes up any further... haha!
I've made my points well and clear.
