Re: [RC] [RC] RideCamp -LDs. - Kristen A Fisher

I think it's the implication that 25 miles isn't "real endurance" because 1)
it is called "limited" distance and 2) is not in fact, as you pointed out in
your other post, considered "endurance."

When in actuality it requires less limits and more endurance than 99% of
anyone who ever got on a horse.

The odd part about this discussion is that I have heard for years how LD
riders are considered second-class riders, but I'll be darned if I've ever
actually heard anyone bad-mouth a LD rider to his face.  Maybe it's just a
factoid (meaning if misinformation is told often enough, it is accepted as
the truth.)  I've heard this story over and over, and I actually took a
young horse to his first event - a LD ride.  I surely never had the
impression that anyone thought I was inferior because I did.  Maybe we
like to keep the rumor mill going for the entertainment value?
