Tuesday’s Top 10 – Conversations at the Canadian Pan Am selectors’ meeting

WARNING: Only read if you have a sense of humour.

Check in every Tuesday for our Top 10 list that could feature just about anyone or anything related to Eventing. No rider, owner, coach, or nation is off limits.


  • 10.
    Selector 1: So have the riders on the list submitted their paperwork on time?
    Selector 2: Obviously, like as if we would ever announce a rider on the team that didn’t.
  • 8.
    Selector 1: I vote for Hawley.
    Selector 2: She does not have a horse.
    Selector 1: She needs a horse?
  • 7.
    Selector 3: Well Jess is a must.
    Selector 2: But she is in a body cast.
    Selector 3: She would still ride better than the Americans.
  • 6.
    Selector 3: How is Kathryn a Canadian when she has a British accent?
    Selector 2. That is weird. Hey, maybe we could pass off Leslie Law as Canadian with his British accent too. He wins everything.
  • 5.
    Selector 4: Waylon Roberts has my vote:
    Selector 1. I agree, but only if he wears mittens in show-jumping.  He has to keep that middle finger under control.
  • 4.
    Selector 1: Eventing Connect reported that the US team is ordering a pair of Buck’s lucky socks for every team member.
    Selector 2: Then order some for our riders, we are not going to give them an edge.
  • 3.
    Selector 2: Ok, we have to narrow down the choices. What does the criteria say?
    Selector 1: We don’t follow criteria, that’s up to the riders to read and protest when we fuck up.
  • 2.
    Selector 4: We already have the Olympic qualification, so can we just each pick our best friend?
    Selector 2: Good idea. You don’t want to deal with the wrath of a friend.
  • 1.
    Selector 4: We sent the Americans home defeated in 1812 and we can do it again!
    Selector 1: We won the Pan Am Games in 1812?
