Re: [RC] Land size for ride - Lynne Glazer

There is not much endurance gear to be found at my local merchants, who cater to the more typical Western or English rider.? I do shop for consumable horse care items locally, and buy all my feed locally, that latter thru the tiny feedstore in my rural area.

I feel it's just as important to support the vendors who support my sport, and that means mail order or more typically, online shops.? They often provide prizes for rides, and implement innovations that help me keep my horse comfortable and provide convenience for me.? Price is still a concern, but secondary.

who also avoids WallyWorld, but more because of their business practices than anything else

One more question about parcel size.........
?
I realize now from the learned insight that it would take a considerable piece of land to put on a fun and interesting ride.? Let me ask you this.....would 2000+/- acres?be enough to get anyones attention??
?
I understand that it would take a consider parcel size to put on a 100 miler, but what about a 50+ ride?
?
Second question off the land subject.......
?
As a pair of fresh eyes, I am interested as to the shopping habits of the endurance rider.? Why would you shop at a MegoMart like Petsmart/Stateline Tack when it seems to me that there are several options of venders?in your own community.? Your own community venders have horse and ride knowledge as opposed to MegaMart cashiers.?? I personally shop in my own community and support my local merchants.? Only if my small town store doesn't have what I need, I will then breakdown and shop the soul stealing WallyWorld superstore.? Of course I lose a day in my life everytime I cross the threshold.
