LD or endurance

Hi, Angie
	I vote for 'endurance'.
	If you are already doing 20 mile training rides, 25 mile LD rides will
accomplish nothing.  Since your goal is to do endurance, DO endurance!
	She has learned the vet check procedures and to travel down the trail with
other horses doing CRT--LD has nothing further to teach you. You need to
move up in distance (slowly, of course) in order to teach her the next
steps--eating, drinking, being out all day.  Given her age and experience I
am sure she is 'legged up'--just take it slow and let her develop
eating/drinking habits (while you learn feeding/electrolyting tactics!) for
the longer distance--it is NOT the same!
