Re: [RC] Horse Age Poll - rides2far

 Just ask what are the ages of the horses you are competing with.

While you're at it, why not ask at what age those horses started
competing? Kaboot is 14 but I started him as a 5 year old. Ben is 21. He
started endurance I believe at about 10...I'd have to ask his owner...or
how's about this? "Name the ages at which they started and the number of
years each horse competed of each horse you have ridden in endurance".
Maybe that would give us some valuable data.  Personally I think who the
rider is may be the most important variable in whether the horse lasts. I
went through a couple of short career horses before I found a few I could
keep sound for the sport over a long term career. Now I wonder if I just
finally got good horses or if the horses just finally got a rider who had
a clue. >g<
