Re: [RC] AERA - Truman Prevatt

In 2002 there were 20879 starts in all distances in the AERC. Of those about 1000 were one day 100's, about 12,000 endurance rides other in 1 day 100's (there were very few two day 100's so they don't play much). The rest were LD's.

So Lucy is right, you would have to look over multiple years most likely in the AERA to have an adaquate set set to compare. On the other hand, the growth in deaths over the past few years in the AERC is much greater than the growth in starts - that's the part where we should all be concerned, independent of what is happening in the AERA

Just curious, but how many 'endurance miles ridden' does AERA have? I'm not saying what they are doing isn't good, I'm just curious about the comparison.

The 2002 AERC year book lists total rider miles as 781,695.

If the problems we are having are 1% (or whatever) of those
miles and AERA has substantially fewer total miles ridden,
then statistically they wouldn't have the same degree of
"problem".

(Then maybe look at total miles ridden for FEI rides and
recompare... that puts speed in the picture).
