[RC] The start of a LD - Kathy Ramspott

I have only done 1 ride so far and the start was ‘paced’  That is someone from Ride Management I assume led the LD horses for a while at a walk at the beginning of the race/ride  and then pulled away and let people do there thing.  

My question is are all rides like this?  If not then If I was to not start riding until 5 minutes or so after the start and let my girl get her ‘heebie jeebies’ out by letting her canter for the first 5 – 10 minutes will I end up catching up to other folks or do most starts start pretty fast then pace down?


Thanks for any info.
