Mary King and Call Again Cavalier *pts*

sigh* Just heard that the eventing world had another casualty.
Mary King's Call Again Cavalier (one of my fav eventers ) was euthanized after he fell and broke a hind leg at the Express Eventing competion in Wales.

Man, what a crappy year for eventers...

The thing that REALLY ****es me off is that it could have been avoidable. Now, MK is not to blame-although I suppose she did ultimately make the choice to ride when she could have withdrew. But there was only SIX finishers of the course, out of 20+ riders. Because the course was that slippery and trecherous-they had so many falls and refusals and people who withdrew. So why the hell wouldn't show management call it? I mean, yes, eventing is supposed to test a horse. But it should never be so strenuous that the horse's and rider's safety are at risk
