Re: [RC] Shortage of Multi-Days in SE - Tina Hicks
I would think another reason might be that we often are doing good to come
up with 25 - 50 miles (usually only 25 miles worth) of trail which are
used for a 25, 50, 100 miler ride in one day - coming up with more trail
so the 2nd or 3rd day isn't a complete repeat of day one is a challenge.
Not many areas in the SE have that many miles of trail in one spot
(like BSF where there's 250 miles of horse trail in one area - way more
trail than is in the entire state of AL).
Additionally, many of our rides use a combination of public and private
land - getting permission to cross a landowner's property once with a
bunch of horses (maybe in the rain, mud, etc...) is a big deal - asking to
do that 2 or 3 days in a row would really be tough :)
