    [RC] yep..yet another one from me:) - Kathie Ford

    And yet again~!
    I just wanted to comment on the LD thread comments.  I've only ridden LD's so far.  I've ridden them only in California.  Personally, I never felt different (ignorance is bliss!!!? lol!)and never felt treated differently.  I did come across a cranky rider or two, but I though maybe they were just pooped or not having a good day!  Anyway my experinces were very nice and the Ride Managers and vets were wonderful and very helpful.  (Yes, you too Maryben!!-especially)
    It encouraged me to continue and desire to do more "real" endurance in the future.  I haven't been able to do more rides like I want do to my finances and limited travel opportunities currently.  But I'm persisting and my will and desire are strong!!
    I also have used them to see if my horse(s) like the sport and would do well.  I'd be concerned to take them on a longer ride at first and find out it's not for them.  I'm just a bit cautious that way.  I also have a horse I very much love who is a anglo-arab (16'1") and loves to be out, but because of injuries incurred prior to adopting her I wouldn't want to ask her to do more than a 25.  That way, she stays sound, has some fun and gets to go somewhere with the others in her herd once in a while.  She is a horse who needs a "purpose" or she gets bumbed like me!! lol..really...she does!  She gets depressed!
    Anyway, just wanted to share my mindset on the subject.  Enjoyed the threads on it.
    thanks,  kathie (again!)
