Re: [RC] [RC] In the top ten - Howard Bramhall

You know, I read that and now I regret responding to Kat's post at all. In fact, I think I misread what she had written completely. When a post starts out with my name on it I usually start thinking, "Oh, crap, here it comes." And, quite often, I respond incorrectly. If my post to Kat had anything to do with some whacko coming out of the woodworks like this it kind of sickens me. This is one of the reasons why, in my old age, I'm starting to prefer the company of horse to human. Horses are never cruel like this to any creature, even humans.

Anyway, I think I crossed the line with Kat so I'm gonna openly say to her, "Kat, I'm sorry for my post. I think you're the greatest endurance rider (next to my gal, Val) around and I have nothing but respect for you as a rider, a writer, and as Spock (from Star TRek), reincarnated, in the female form. You're the best and I was out of line."

Now, isn't that nice? A one probably-anonymous-rat report, we'll see if this address from your post bounces as bad.

Perhaps you shouldd review Kat's ride record at http://www.aerc.org and track her top ten finishes as well as any metabolic pulls?

Consider that the ride she had a horse treated at is so difficult that the ride flyer is written so as to discourage anyone who doesn't have a conditioned horse? And that there were less than 40 entries?

It never fails to amaze me how people can leap to judgement without doing any research at all.

Kat doesn't need me to defend her, however, ridecamp is viewed by *thousands*, and defamation like this doesn't have to stand undefended for a day or until she can reply herself.

And "shit" can happen, any time, to anybody including the back of the pack riders. I only hope your horse is lucky.

from Kat "Personally, I shouldn't give a shit where the other people on the course are, and if I find myself starting to concern myself over this, I remind myself that this is the first step on the road to overriding my horse and tell myself to "knock it off!" :)."

I was wondering how your horse was doing after it was put on IV's at the vet check earlier this year when you were running top ten????? Was it just thumps, or deyhdration too, I don't remember.
