Re: [RC] [Guest] distance between checks - Barbara McCrary

Well......upon reading my own post to ridecamp, and subtracting 15 from 36,
I realize I made a mathematical error!  Let's just say that this system has
been working, and it would be difficult to have a vet check between 15 miles
and 36 miles.  There were no horses pulled for any reason until about 69
miles.  It was a good year........

This post reminds me of a story written awhile back about one rider's
experience on the 2003 Swanton Pacific 100.  She had said that the first
vet
check was at 35 miles.  This was incorrect and I should have corrected it
then, but just let it slip.  There was a no-hold vet check at 15 miles.
The
horses were examined thoroughly at the point but were not required to
stay.
The next vet check was at 36 miles and was a 1 hour hold.  All of the vet
checks were roughly no more than 15 miles apart.  In light of the recent
discussions about frequency of vet checks, if someone read that SP's first
vet check was at 35 miles they might be horrified, so I thought
clarification was in order.

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.
