[RC] Howard and "FOUR successful ride seasons with the SAME horse" - A. Perez

Oh.... yet another unwritten "rule" as to what it takes
to become a "REAL" endurance rider.  From the tone of
the emails below, I would assume that being unbearably 
condescending is also absolutely essential.

Fortunately this sort of superior attitude is the exception, 
rather than the rule, on rc.

We should all applaud everyone's successes! There is NO
need to rain on ANYONE'S parade!

But let's hold the gushing until he has completed at least FOUR 
successful ride seasons with the SAME horse -- SOUND!!!   Then, 
I will say Howard "knows his horse."   One ride (or even one 
ride SEASON) doesn't cut it.....  What makes a good endurance 
horse AND a good endurance rider is consistency!!!!!!!

I was sticking with the shunning theory, but this was too 
good.  Well said.
