RE: Malabu Incident & LD

<<About the Malabu incident, instead of BC awards (and similar awards to 100 mile rides) for LD rides, could we not have positive reinforcement such as "sportsmanlike awards".  I'm just thinking out loud here, but could criteria not be based on their behaviour on the trail (those who behave extremely well, also get noticed), their behaviour at vet checks, and overall sportsmanship.  Surely the vets, ride managers, and ride workers are well aware of the 'good guys' on the trail.  This award is not at all speed related, but simply takes notice of courtesy, horsemanship, and fellowship.


What about an Annual year end award for top Junior 'Sponsor'.  Somebody who goes out of their way to really teach our juniors how to do it right.  You know the person who you would love to have your children ride with if you can't.  Maybe some of you who feel you can no longer compete in 100's and have dropped down to shorter mileages, can take on a junior?>>




I think those are great ideas.  At a recent CTR ride, there was an award chosen by the P&R people for the person they saw smiling and having a great time out there.  I thought it was a great idea.  I think it would be good to stress the fun and learning factor of LD’s.  I think the sponsor award would be a good one too.
