RE: [RC] [RC] [RC] [RC] RideCamp -LDs. - Libby & Quentin Llop DVM

My family and I have 3,560 miles of real endurance on non Arabs, including 11 top tens, 2 wins and a BC.  If you want to talk about prejudice,  I think the attitude of "your horse can't do this because he's not an Arab" is much more prevalent than looking down on LD riders.  LL

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)
