<< I had planned two years minimally of NATRC with my young horses (coming 5
 and 6) before trying an AERC ride, just to learn what the horses are like
 under stress and out on the trail in a more controlled setting.  Then I'd
 like to try slow 25's under AERC when the horses are fitter & seasoned on
 the trail.  Does this sound like a reasonable progression?

Yes, even a bit conservative, I would say.  I have a coming 6 year old that I 
will start on a few 25-30 mile rides this year.  Next year he'll be ready for 
50s. I've done slow 50 milers on a then coming 6-year-old mare.
