As that trend increases the numbers of riders competing in LD, the current

have to address a number of 
issues that have not been adequately addressed in the past.

This certainly ruffles my feathers.  I have not witnessed this so called second 
class treatment....Our ride this weekend had about 35 LD riders, only 10 of 
whom finished in time.  One was picked up by the RM about 4 miles from the 
finish because she was very sick.  Every single one of the OT riders got their 
finishing award, which was the same award the 50 milers got, a hand made 
polarfleece blanket.  

As far as BC goes, we choose not to give an AERC BC award.  We give a horse 
excellence award which is available to all of the finishers.  The rules do not 
require the BC award and we are free to choose not to give it.............mb
