I know nothing about the man, I do seem to get generalized statements about riding on my FB page.
Knowing that he is 80 puts things in a very different light for me. Absolutely people of that age get disinhibited; all are having physical decline, and most are having at least mild cognitive decline from their prime years. Sad but true. Add this to virtually all horse pros have had multiple TBI.
I also think that anyone running a personal promo or business page is well within their rights to block any comments that don’t fit their marketing strategy. They aren’t running an open discussion forum on a topic. They are promoting themselves. Even our local “Horse and Tack Classified” FB groups shut down actual debate fast.
Can a personal promo or business page be a misleading guide to the reality? Absolutely! Indeed, I’d say that is the whole point of a business page! It’s meant to be advertising! That’s how social media works.
I dont know what DE is said to have done. Unless it is something hits Safe Sport, I’m not going to get too worried about what happens on the advertising page of a farm belonging to an aging coach emeritus.
