Re: Safe starts at races...

The easiest way to have a safe start at a ride (I've found) is to avoid the
start of the race.  I wait for most of the riders to leave (while I
continue warming my horse up away from the start area), then I head out. 
It seems to be easier on my horse (they don't burn so much needed energy in
the first 10 miles or so), and it's much safer because I avoid the majority
of the "traffic".  And, yes, you can still compete using this technique --
I rarely finish out of the top ten.  Hope this helps!
