When I thought about writing an update on the rider rep program I wondered how I could get everyone’s attention. I tried writing a genuinely interesting piece, but when I finished I was not certain I had accomplished the task. My wife Jenn suggested the title for this article, and I hope it does the trick, so listen up people.
I have had the privilege to serve as the chair of the Professional Horseman’s Council for the past three years. It has been a time consuming but exceptionally rewarding position. We, as a group, have worked on what we consider to be very important issues. Two years ago, we put forward a revision of how the warm-up should be changed for both cross-country and show jumping.
Thank you for taking the time to read what will become a regular update by members of the Professional Horseman’s Council. The PHC is a group of professionals within the sport of three-day eventing. This group is not just riders, but also organizers, grooms, and many other people who derive at least a part of their income from horses.
