[RC] Pacing - Kathy Mayeda

Got back from Death Valley Encounters.  Had a great time.  I just wanted to ask some of you Ridecampers to see how you determine pacing!


Last year I rode with someone who did intervals of walk and trot over the long flat stretches.  This year I rode with someone who maintained long sustained trots.  Then I rode with someone else who would walk, then canter to catch up.   All three regularly top ten endurance rides of 50 to 100 miles.


Beau and I discovered the beauty of maintaining a long sustained trot.  We used to be the surge and rest type, which I think annoys some of the other riders.  What do you think?
