Re: [RC] ridecamp reaction to Truman's comments (Cindy Collins) - patty peck

I agree,   100 mile horses are in a class by themselves and should not be confused with LD and 50  miles horses. A 100 mile horse can do a LD or 50, but a LD or 50 miler horse can not necessarily complete a 100 mile one day ride.
 I have done one 100 miler and do not consider myself an endurance rider at the time.  I do consider myself an endurance dabbler. :-))  PP... who hasn't been to a ride in 3 years...............

. That being said, not everyone is an endurance rider AND not every
horse has done a one day 100. It's very offensive to me (and apparently
I'm not alone out there) for a horse to be given a 100 mile horse award
without having accomplished a one day 100. It's VERY misleading to the
public and don't think for a second that some of those horses will have
that award on advertising and as a selling/breeding point. As they say in
that southern movie..."It ain't fittin', it just ain't fittin'!" Cindy
