Just another SE great endurance ride.
After PanAm it was a real relief to get back to just the good ole
endurance racing and riding from the SE.
Ride was on FRI and SAT with a Sunday 10 mile RT - I left Sun am
I was suppose to ride both days - but it seems I ripped up my legs and
knees while at PanAm doing the trot training for the horse I was
groom/crew. Anyway I was not walking well less able to ride.
SO - since I knew most of the SE riders would be there riding, I told Karen I
I did Pulse - yes with the hrm. The other pulse takers used the
standard method. Except on Sat then Joe S used one of the hrms. Only
had 3 pulse takers maybe 4 for over 80 horses? on Fri
then 2 to 3 on Sat for about the same - more or less. We handled
them all ... I did sort of sneak off at the end on Sat and left Nina
to get the last riders.
This was my first time at a RT .. way so cool. I GOT to get in shape
again and try this next year .. Jerry F and I will make the well over
Century team and we are the same size at the stirrup length.. I am sure he can ride Omni ..
Nothing big to report.. no major crashes - very few treated either
day .. it was hot - riders took proper care of their horses.
Most pulls were for lamness.
Hard pack rocky technical trail with nice climbs - as an endurance ride should be.
Great vets did not miss an issue.
BC given for both 50 milers and both 30LDs. All well deserving.
All the TT I saw looked great.
Lots of water in camp at VC and on trail it was hot
Few ribbons down - Quick fix by Nina and Duanne B - few off trail then back on.
no one really lost.
A good number of horse-rider teams did both days for a "2 day 100"
For many it was their first 'mini multi'
Very high completion rate .. I am sure Nina will post the list.
Ride manager Karen Clark was/is one tough lady . Kept cool both days even after her 30
mile RT on Sat.
Jose and Ben - just a GREAT JOB. Wont be long till she smokes Angie.
Gosh an upbeat post on RC .. Great ride - nothing went wrong -
unless I missed something??
How about that ?
