Re: [RC] Was John C/Heraldic-Now readiness for 100s - Truman Prevatt

Boy some folks have a difficult time reading a whole post and are very good taking comments out of context. First of all it said MOST. Most is not all. If you don't fit - you are not in the most category. The post goes on to say,

"For those who want an equine partner for the long term to do a 100 every once in a while - having a horse ready to go do the OD, Tevis or AERC NC, etc. there is nothing wrong with having a good solid base with 2 to 3 good years before you step up to a 100. "

Does that not cover the rest of it?

In case you haven't noticed the Pan Am or NAC is an FEI championship ride and the USEF is in charge. All the qualifications will carry over unless USEF has a change of heart. The only thing that remains to be seen is what impact will result from the US and Canada having to compete to host the Pan Am.

    oriented and
    are interested in 100's.

This is really a generalized statement. I certainly do not fit this description and many of the 100 mile riders I compete with are not riding 100s in the hope of riding FEI someday. I can't believe that you would generalilze like this. There are riders out there that want to do 100s for the challenge of 100s and do NOT want the costs, structure and the pressure of FEI riding. If you don't believe me look at the PS 100 mile riders that have reached the bronze,gold, and silver level. There are three riders that have ridden at the Pan Am level of FEI and only two that I know of that want to continue to ride at the FEI level.
