Re: [RC] Land size for ride - Laney Humphrey

It's not just the amount of land that's important but also where the trails are or could be run. Lots of trail can be put on flat, open terrain but if there are mountains, rivers, canyons, cliffs, etc. that limit where trails can safely go, then more land is needed.
As for shopping, there aren't very many towns that have shops that carry endurance related stuff. Almost all of it is only available on-line or by mail. We do support our "local" vendors, they just happen to exist in our on-line community!

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.
