Re: [RC] [RC] [Consider This] Endurance - The Good Ol' Days - Carla Richardson

Outstanding, Andrea!  Loved your post, maybe I'm a grouchy old lady, too. :-o 
 
Since I've ridden by myself all my life, just me and my horse, going out on the trails in competition isn't that different for me, other than I ride a lot faster - ha!  I've learned SO much from both ctr and endurance, that's made riding distance easier.  But it's never risk free.  And why would it be -- nothing -- nothing! -- is risk free.  Thankfully...

I think the biggest change in endurance today is the riders and their

If you don't accept the risk to your horse, you need to do things that
won't create risk for him, or take up Extreme Ironing and leave the
horse out of it. I guarantee he won't haul himself to a ride and cough
up an entry fee without you.
