to back this statement up with evidence other than some nonsense about
Americans having no leg?!!
>dressage riders..don't think much of three day riders. Of course,
>day riders think they are the best...
perpetuate these rumors. I believe that for the most part there is mutual
respect between the riders of different disciplines.
>dressage and show jumping?
You would have to agree that he has most certainly excelled in dressage.
EVERYONE????? Don't you think it's possible for an individual to be
dedicated to a specific sport, yet can still follow and have a high
appreciation of the sports of others? I really think you need to re-read
and think about your comments before you post them before a group as
diverse as rec.eq. But maybe this is just the way some radio people are.
Perhaps you are trying to become the Rush Limbaugh of rec.eq. Better yet,
perhaps you *are* Rush and are trying to stir things up here. ;-) But, oh
yeah, you did post that bio....hmmmm.
got the records through 1984 right here. Without getting too specific,
I'll leave out the names and just concentrate on medals: 1924 Olympics,
individual bronze; 1932 Olympics, team gold, ind. silver; 1936 Olympics,
ind. silver; 1948 Olympics, team gold, ind. silver; 1952 Olympics, team
bronze; 1964 Olympics, team silver; 1968 Olympics, ind. bronze, team
silver; 1970 World Championships, ind. bronze; 1972 Olympics, team silver;
1974 World Champ., team gold, ind. gold, ind. silver; 1976 Olympics, team
gold, ind. gold, ind. silver;1978 World Champ., team bronze, ind. gold;
1980 Alternative to Olympics, ind. silver, ind. bronze; 1982 World Champ.,
team bronze, ind. bronze; 1984 Olympics, team gold, ind. silver;
I think the successes listed above in combination with the U.S.'s more
recent international successes posted earlier by someone else clearly
refute your statement that "in eventing Americans do poorly." Do you
