Re: [RC] LD catagory....? - Maggie Mieske

I started out doing 25 mile comp and LD on my first Arab, Jonathan.  When
Malik came along, I knew I had a horse that could eventually do 100 miles
(it was the rider I had doubts about).  Malik was 8 last year and ready.  We
did our first 100 and LOVED it.  I am planning to do that 100 again this
year.  The Wolverine Ride is offering a 75 this year and I am hoping to talk
trail boss/co-manager, Jim Yell, into bringing back the 100 on a regular
basis.  Of course, don't know how I can manage AND ride my own 100 but I
would like to do the 100 on the Wolverine trail.  Next month, I am planning
on doing a back to back 25 comp on Sat/25 LD on Sunday and riding with some
friends and people new to the sport.  It'll be a fun ride.  A training ride
for some newbies, I hope and FUN.  Did I say that already?  :)  There IS
room under the tent for all of us.  :)  But I can't describe the feeling
that finishing a 100 gives you...ya just have to do it.

The only thing worse than crewing for a female Endurance rider is crewing
for a wet, tired female Endurance Rider! A good crew person has patience, a
sense of humor, and knows that sometimes it's best to say nothing at all!
