Oh, Richard, you have said it all!  Watching all of
these riders come into the stadium going on 22 hours I
wanted to cry for the Lower Quarry pulls - knowing
they were at 23 hours on the ride.  When you think in
terms of hours instead of miles it is all so raw.  I
just can't even imagine.

As badly as I would like to do Tevis there were a few
things that happened, freak accidents, that make me
think twice about the ride.  However, knowing some of
the things that happened yesterday.  And seeing the
last riders coming in for their victory ride, walk,
trot, etc. - with HUGE SMILES and their horses going
along like it was just another bend in the road, was
an emotional reaction I just don't know how to
explain.  Other than thinking - "I hope that can be me
some day!"
