While reviewing the new FEI rules I really only have one comment.
OK, that’s a lie. I have lots of comments but I have one overriding concern.
What about everyone with a 4 Star tattoo?
They worked, they slaved, they finally made it.
They completed their first 4 star and to commemorate it they got a
permanent monument to their achievement tattooed somewhere
on their body.
And now a 4 star is a CCI 5 Star Major
Here’s a dizzying chart from the FEI
So the real questions:
Do they leave the 4 star tattoo and explain to all the kids in the future,
“Back in my day a CCI 5 Star Major was called a 4 star.”
Or do they get a coverup?
I wish the FEI would consider all the unintended consequences when they make these kind of decisions.
