    You're going to look into a young child's eyes and tell that child you CAN'T RIDE?  I don't see how you can do this.  I may not have millions of miles, I really don't care.  My whole point here is LIFE AS A JUNIOR... well it was just that LIFE.
    *Jinnifer-being a responsible adult means doing this all the time.  From looking into their eyes and telling them not to stick their finger into a light socket, to breaking their heart becuase they aren't allowed to drive a car.  I do envy you your life as a junior.  I wish I had parents into horses, and  by golly, I have tried to create the childhood I so desperately wanted....to at least offer those opportunities to my kids, and giving them that choice! I dont' see how delaying AERC competition to a reasonable age is going to wreck a childs life. Most kids remember very little before age 5.  They can still have tons of fun, and you can't tell me how a 4 or 5 year old cares one whit how many miles they have accumulated!  It's the parents that care.
