MONTHLY - February 2011

Smell and show your teeth, go for what you believe in!


The dominating theme in recent days is the ECAHO and its position. The ECAHO have to face the intentions of new organizations established in the Middle East, who make their own show and show system meanwhile. All 2011 shows in the Emirates, except the Dubai International show, plus some shows in Europe are no longer ECAHO affiliated anymore. They follow the rules of the new organization which in general, offers the same main structure as the ECAHO has previously, and the levels A, B, C are for example replaced by Gold, Silver, Bronze show.

ECAHO seems to move closer and closer to a crisis! On the 6th March at the ECAHO Annual General Meeting, the chair of president and several other chairs are for a new election - on the Executive Committee, the Show Commission and the Sports Commission. The candidates are nominated, people and names have been discussed, but nobody talks about the horse anymore or presents a well structured programme of what shall be intended by work and realized to give progression and improvement.

Let the candidates present their programmes, their plans, ideas and visions. Let them convince you about their ideas and plans. "Smell" what's going on, listen carefully, make up your mind and decide - not for a name or an individual person, but for the theme, facts and plans that he/she wants to realize during the period of time holding the chair. Look what has been done so far, and see what shall be done in the future - actively and with professional mind for the general!
We all should focus the horse, agree a fair, good and correct show system and community that should always have respect and ethics from and for all sides.
Business, money, power and vanity - all is okay and has it's rightful place and maybe even it is needed - but always in a right place and level. Only with money, the shows can be run in class and style. - and we all enjoy if so.

The cross-road is now! ECAHO and the groups - internal and external - should stop their personal 'fights', they should present their detailed programmes, and let the countries and people understand WHAT exactly they go for and want to do when in power. Bring the focus strongly toward the horse, and a good, correct show system, unify and find solutions to behalf of the horse even when coming from different directions!
