Re: RC: Just what is LD competition?

. In over 10 years of riding,
running and working rides I've only seen one LD horse treated which is
about 50
times fewer horses than I've seen treated at the endurance distances.  I
someone could explain what in LD invokes such an emotional reaction.


    The beginning of this year, we attended the Fire Mt. Ride.  Dave
Nicholson "The Duck," announced at the pre-ride meeting (he was head Vet.)
that their has been more treatments done for the LD rides than any other
distance.  Of course, since I've been at this since 1977, I just couldn't
agree, but who knows, I sure could be wrong.  I left my opinion to my self at
that point.
    He also announced that real endurance riders rode 100 miles.  Boy, did
that stir up the crowd.  I think it even got on Ridecamp.  I would have to
check the Jan. archives. I know there was a certain point he was trying to
make, but it wasn't taken in by the riders as intended.
