[RC] Learning by doing... - E.L. Ashbach

Ridecamp and Ed,

I just wanted to comment on something that Ed said in the quote below which is pertinent to our educational challenges in endurance. It's the part where he said he has "learned a tremendous amount doing distance riding."

Haven't we all? You just don't know what you don't know starting out...

And particularly I agree with the 2nd paragraph below, thanks for saying it, Ed.


That said, I have learned a tremendous amount by doing distance riding. All of my horse usage is now safer than it was before I started endurance riding. Can I claim that some of the good health of the 7 horses in my pasture is "endurance related" perhaps canceling some of the "endurance related" risk of illness??

The endurance community can be proud of the way we care for equines.  What
we need to do is to build on our strengths and make the sport safer for us
and our horses.

The glass is not half empty, it is half full and getting fuller.
