I was thinking the title of this thread could be “WTF ???” but decided it is probably not appropriate – or fair.
I have followed Endurance a little bit, at a distance, attended a ride or two as volunteer/spectator, and at this point just find the discipline interesting and a lot to learn from.
I know just enough to know that many U.S. endurance riders have cut off the FEI and international sport for good reasons, so are probably not following the story in the link.
Given the horrors I have read about the way the sport is practiced in certain parts of the world, I wondered if there is anything to learn from this story other than “WTF is wrong with that court ???” If it’s just that, you don’t have to waste your precious time responding (time you could spend with a horse ). That part I get already.
