Re: [RC] Endurance News cover photos - Barbara McCrary

That makes a lot of sense. I have two granddaughters, ages nearly 14 and 15. They aren't oblivious to boys, but right now, riding endurance is taking a lot of their attention. The younger one did a 75 miler in July and a 50 miler on August 5. The older one did the 50 in August, as well. They are just so excited about riding in competition and are perfectly happy to be finishers. They are careful of their horses and are riding with either their dad or another sponsor. That way, they are getting acquainted with other adults and are enjoying getting to know them. When I get my new horse in shape for a 50, I would love to sponsor one of the girls. They seem to do better if they both don't ride with the same sponsor. The younger one has her sights set on Tevis next year.

That's sure the truth. But let me say that while the jrs that ride today
might not be the specific adults who will ride tomorrow, the jr thing is
sooo important to these kids. For one thing, a study (but I don't know who
or where) once showed that girls into horses delayed the "onset" of boy-it
is by approx 2 yrs. And when jrs are busy riding, they can't be busy
getting into other trouble.
