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.
