Re: Is 100 miles in one day too much? RE: [RC] WEG 2006 - Sisu West Ranch

"...The logistics would be difficult for horses, but if it could be worked
out, what about a race where the winner is the horse/rider team that
travels the fartherest in 24 hours?  That would slow the speed down..."

While it would make the event even less press friendly, there is no real reason that you would have to have a track for the end. You issue each competitor a GPS which reports the exact position at the 24 hours. Since the event organizers know the trails, position exactly determines the miles traveled.

The horses are then met at predesignated points, and trailered back to the base for final vet.

I do like the idea. It is true endurance for a horse and rider to go down the trail for a full 24 hours.
