What do you think about the end of the top four horse swap at the WEG?

It’s the worst decision ever taken by the FEI.

As Melinda Ford said, it's beautiful for the fans and spectators but the horses end up to jump too many 1.60 rounds in just few days.
I love that the riders have to show their skill and ability on a horse they probably had never sat on! Canadian Gail Greenough's win was incredible and showed the challenge of the competition
The final four was wonderful for spectators but perhaps too hard on the horses? They ended up jumping up to nine 1.60 rounds in one week! I wander what the owners and riders of valuable Grand Prix horses think about it?
