[RC] re: Steph's comments - Cindy Collins

Hey, Steph.  I respect and admire you and you make a great case for your
opinion.  However, we will agree to disagree.  The only way I'd buy your
idea is IF there were defined levels, like intro, novice, etc.  However,
most of us got into this sport for the "purity" and simplicity.  Yes, I do
feel like a dinosaur and do feel the sport has done like the economy:  the
middle class is getting pushed out.  There's the LD crowd and there's the
FEI crowd and the rest of us are feeling homeless.  Ridecamp is the only
place we seem to have these discussions and I appreciate you creating the
forum.  We just disagree on the definition of the sport.  I believe you
will win this one in the end, but I will feel the sport has lost something
precious.  It never was meant to be something that just any person on any
horse could do...I'll say that when I can no longer ride 10 milers, much
less 100 milers.  Cindy
