[RC] [Guest] distance between checks - Ridecamp Moderator

Mollie Krumlaw-Smith mkrumlaw@xxxxxxxxxxxx
I think my comments on my being able to feel the difference in my horses on the longer loops were taken out of context, or maybe I should have given more detail. As a RIDER I can and DO give my horses breaks often on longer loops. I have felt the difference in training, learned from this, and I slow down and/or change my riding plan for longer looped rides. As a rider I prefer shorter loops. I'm allowed to have a preference.

However, as a RIDE MANAGER, you have to assume not all riders are going to care for their horses in the same manner. So as a ride manager I do everything in my power to help them out. Thus more loops, longer holds, and water.
