RE: [RC] LD to receive same recognition? - Margie Burton

And here I've just been feeling blessed to be able to afford a horse and trailer and have friends to ride with - little loops or big, 25 miles or 100.  Actually, where I live (in the city) there is only one park with horse trails and those total all of 10 miles.  And I am incredibly thankful for each and every one of those.

Good on you, Deanna.
    With the "rider friendly" loop rides now being conducted as "endurance" rides (yes, I know about the disappearing land available, etc.),  the only thing left after the "watering down" takes place will be one big hamster wheel, big enough for a horse and rider to jump on and get off once the appropriate mileage has been met.
    "Watering down" seems to be what alot of folks want/need these days.
    It seems alot of folks barely have time to ride a fifty or hundred, take a few minutes, throw the horse and everything else back into the trailer and race home, where, I believe the sky must be falling or the coffee pot was left on.
    You're in luck, Becky just came by and thumped me on the back of my head...gotta go.
