    Fw: [RC] The Reno Newspaper Article on Cliffy Lewis - Sullivan

    I agree.  Even if they just plunked him up there for the photo, it does not set a good example.
    I read the article with an open mind, but frankly, it did not reassure me any that this is a good idea.
    The father is quoted as saying that he rates the ride on a difficulty scare of 7-8 out of a 10, and the article mentions father and
    son have done prior endurance rides; then the father is quoted as saying,"but until you get out there and get going, you really don't know what to expect."
    How is this a shinning example for the sport?

    I was saddened to see five-year-old Cliffy astride a horse and *not* wearing a helmet.
