Thanks to TA for sending this to us.  As an aside, I heard much more about people being fooled by EN’s April fools joke about a new five-star event as the weekend progressed.  All I will say is that there are some very powerful people in eventing who are both avid readers of EN and very very gullible.  Go eventing.
