[RC] reconsidiering the cost of rides - Tracey Smith

Not to mention the value of seeing a vet numerous times in a ride and who
has not had the chance at a ride to ask vets for some advice over and above
the regular VC?  I have found if you catch them when they are not busy
(before or after the ride checks) they are more than willing to
chat....those chats are worth something you know.

This same reasoning was brought up on another list when we were talking
about the cost of NATRC CTR's...and how for your ride fee you also basically
get numerous vet consultations and a weekend of horsemanship lessons (wanted
or not...ha ha ha).

Add that to the value of relaxing with friends and enjoying the great


p.s.  please remind me I said the above the next time I am whining about
fuel prices!

[RC] ok, reconsidering the cost of rides - Carolyn Burgess

Anyone who has shown or rodeod, figure out the cost
per second or mile to ride.  For us, it works out to
be anwhere from $1 to $4/mile to ride, and they will
feed you for that price.  Find out how much a dressage
class or hunter, or trail class at a show costs per
mile, and it won't include the meal, or the great
company that you'll get at an endurance ride.
