Fwd: RC: Re: Australian System
Yeah, but how many endurance riders actually start out in CTR?? I
didn't!!! I had a mare that needed splint boots, etc. and so
couldn't take her in NATRAC. At the time that was the only CTR org.
I knew of. I know several other people that have done years of
endurance and never done a CTR. There are no guarantees that an
endurance rookie with start with a good slow base.
