Re: [RC] Very young riders in AERC rides - Truman Prevatt
I think the issue some have with this is if you replace the world "child"
with the word "horse" the AERC does have concern with young horses but not
young children. Isn't it up the the horse owner when he can and how far he
can ride his horse? If not they why are young children different.
The AERC is a national organization. It functions in all 50 states of the
US and Canada. As such it can come under the laws of all 50 states and Canada.
My question is does the AERC as an organization risk running afoul of the
law in some state or Canada concerning it's lack of a policy concerning young
If so one local social worker or prosecuting attorney could make the AERC's
life pretty miserable. We do live and function in a larger society.
Isn't up to the parents to dicide whether the child can participate in the
sport? Why would it be Aerc's problem to deal with, shouldnt it be the parents
