[RC] Endurance Futurity? - Carolyn Burgess


I'd go for that.  I just bought my 100 mile prospectin
December.  She just turned 5 and is still learning how
to be a horse after a failed harness racing career. 
She kept breaking in harness. She even broke twice at
the same race.  She hasn't even been broken to saddle
yet so she meets the criteria.  

The only thing that I'd want to see is them do their
first 100 in year 4 instead of 3 because this is how I
plan to work up my mare.  Year 1 - get used to being a
horse, break to saddle, trail ride and get her brain
right if all goes well maybe a few CTRs if all goes
well.  Year 2 - First year really competing at CTR's,
maybe throw in LD's as well. If all goes perfect, end
the year with a 50 and plan on riding at the back of
the pack.  Year 3 - A season of 50's and multi-day
CTR's.  Plan on moving up to finish middle of the pack
for 50's, and at the end of the season see if you and
your horse can finish a ride in the top 10.  Year 4 -
ride 50's consisitently and end the season with an
easy 100. Although I guess I could do three years but
not enter until what I call my year 2.

I also think that you might want a higher fee to
