Re: [RC] COC in 2006 - Truman Prevatt

With a 60% compeltion rate (fairly close for 100's) it jumps up to 270 of 840 or 32%. Yes this is a lot more than the cream. As I stated earlier IMO 13:20 is probably too slow for the US.

The CoC is meaningless when the ride to qualify is so
structured that any reasonable horse can make the time. The
rides are no longer "endurance rides" but qualifying events
tailored to assure the majority of horses will succeed. I
did a quick study on the 2004 year; I found that from
12/01/03 to current posting there have been 1400 entries in
100 mile rides in the AERC. Of these 1400 entries 270 met
CoC time of 13:20 or better. That is 19% not a bad level
from which to pick the best. Of those 270 entries with a
qualifying time, only 183 were International members.

While one would conjecture the cream would rise to the top.
19% is a lot more than the cream.
