US EVENTERS—No Despair, Recalibrate Your Goals—- Be Rolex Bound | Horse Collaborative

US EVENTERS—No Despair, Recalibrate Your Goals—- Be Rolex Bound | Horse Collaborative | Eventing World | Scoop.it

@chrisestafford: Denny Emerson presents a first option to American event riders who aspire to make the team and argues that you don't need to travel to Europe to be competitive. This is in direct contracst to Karen  O'Connor and other current team riders who firmly believe that the only way for the U.S. to get back on the medal podium is to play this game with the best in the world in their back yard.

 

Denny: "I haven't commented much since our USET squad didn't get it done in London, but I've been trying to think of what to say to the very good aspiring riders in eventing who might be thinking that the USET is too big a mountain to climb. Too many mountains, maybe. Million dollar horses, strings of horses, trips to Europe, so much that's so daunting and so out of reach for good riders without those elusive “owners”...
