Re: RC: Fwd: RC: 100 in a day vs 250 over four days

I may be taking this the wrong way, But don't we want our horses to always
sound?  I sure do.  I don't start any ride and "hope" my horse stays
until the finish, if I feel there is a question I stay home.  I don't do a
ride, either 50s, 100s or multi days unless I know my horse is in great
condition.  Yes, I know things can and do go wrong, but "K" seems to have
attitude of doing 100s is best cuz as she says " horse only has to stay
1 day"  Pretty pathetic to me.

Hi Keri, I think you definitely took this one the wrong way :).  I don't
think "K" (aka Karen Chaton) was saying that a horse doesn't have to stay
sound for a 100 miler (she's done those too), just that the challenges of a
multi-day ride require a different focus.  I'm sure K will stand up for
herself just fine (she's short, but she's tough) <bg>
