    RE: [RC] Very young riders in AERC rides - Bob Morris

    While I do not disagree with Joe's position I offer the facts that the main proponents are Cliff Lewis who took this son Tommy on a 100 mile ride when he was five years old and his picture graced the pages of the endurance publications. The latest is Tommy's son, Cliff's grandson, repeating the adventure. This is a family with a deep background in the history of endurance competition in the US. It is a family with an ingrained  deep experience in horse riding. It is a family that is well known.
    I doubt you will ever get a negative experience from any of the family no matter the age.

    Good for you, Joe.  Although I'm sure everyone won't agree, I am behind you
    on this.

    I agree and would like to also thank Joe for saying it so well in his letter.  When the last round of stories came out on RC about a 5 year old doing a 100 miler I was otherwise occuppied (but still appalled) and was tired of hashing this argument out on Ridecamp.  I say GO JOE!!
