Re: Re: AERC and charges

you can't file them against someone who doesn't belong to AERC.  I do think
the BOD should consider closing that loophole somehow.

Has the BOD considered requiring that one must be a member of AERC in order
to compete in a sanctioned endurance ride?  (By waiving the requirement for
shorter distances, we would avoid discouraging newcomers doing LD miles.)

That seems to be the only way we can have any leverage in dealing with
riders who abuse their horses, whose horses get into serious trouble and are
denied needed treatment, etc.
