Re: [RC] [RC] Triple Crown - ll cole

(chiming in on my husband's website!) I agree. I am a dyed in the wool halter, pleasure person that used to three day event a million years ago. And altho my husband has bought me a horse, and I enjoy 25-50 milers,( Sorta) there is not a prize in the world that would make me do a 100. And of couse, I really don't think they will hold my children hostage! However, I have great respect for those of you that do. Kudos!
