RE: [RC] [RC] Endurance rider - heidi

Call yourself what you want--our bylaws do not define riders, they define rides.  You may be an "endurance rider" who simply has never done an "endurance ride."
As for dressage, those of us who have never ridden beyond training level do not try to pass ourselves off as Grand Prix riders.
Additionally, not everything is parallel from sport to sport.  Terminology relationships from one sport may well not fit another sport.  Life just isn't that tidy.

There are many different levels of dressage - do dressage riders
differentiate in what they call themselves? Last time I checks they are
referred to as "dressage riders." The same is true for eventers. Bottom
line, IMO one that belongs to and participates in AERC sanctioned events
is an endurance rider. After all in the bylaws it is not called the
"American Endurance and Limited Distance Ride Conference" it is simply
called the "American Endurance Ride Conference."
