definitely the distance for non Arabian horses whose owners find out that 50
is just a bit much for them to endure.  For another thing, the heavier
riders who find that the longer distances do take more of a toll on their
horse than what the tiny hineys experience; they might find that they do far
better in the 25, 30, or 35 milers where weight classes aren't even a part
of the sport at all.
I am a heavyweight, over 60 years and ride a non arab and would not do any better in LD.............mb (hoping to do more rides when my shoulder is done healing)
