I din't realize that 500 miles was high mileage ?? People who have 500
lifetime miles with their horse are elitist's ?
Those are just getting started miles ! Just answer me one question Alison ,
what is wrong with having to work towards a goal in a competition ? I live
in montana , I  ride one endurance horse at a time , right now I am starting
a young one and we will have a long ways to go before she is ready to top
ten on a ride , oh well that is the dues of the game IF you want to have a
horse go into the 1000 mileage range and beyond . I can only ride from may
until october , one ride a month , it takes me awhile to get some mileage on
a horse but to me that is what the sport is about . Going slow with your
horse teaching them the ropes of endurance and working your way towards the
top tenning/winning of rides . The NC is 1 ride , thats it ! Its not like
people with youngsters and people just starting endurance are losing out on
going to lots of rides if they aren't qualified for the NC . 1 ride that
they can set their goals for in the near future . What is wrong with earning
something instead of getting it handed to you ?
