[RC] re: 100 milers - Cindy Collins

Dear Kristen:  You say, "Hi Diane - No, I understood very well what
Cindy's message was. 

I think it's one thing to share one's experience if you see have seen
someone & their horse at rides, ridden with them, see their horses vet
through, see if/how they take care of themselves, see how they look after
miles, the next day, after multi-days and say "that horse could do a 100".
Making that same or similar assertions [how much time off is needed, etc]
via email from 1,000 miles away is just not that credible to me."

What I asked was "Why, did he think his horse needed that much time off." 
Please do not twist my language or change my meaning (I'm poor enough at
communicating without any assistance).  I think I have the right to ask
that question?  He may answer me with something about him or his horse
that makes me say I agree.  However, I was giving him reasons why it
"might" not be necessary.  Even from 1,000 miles away I hope I can
question and give advice on a topic where my experience far surpasses many
people who are arguing with me.  Cindy
