[RC] LD..it must be winter - Tom Sites

Or so the thread goes...yet this is summer and i'm confused<:)).  Why not recognize that LD helps pay the bills and the AERC Memberships dues, because nobody except maybe the Tevis makes any money on 100's.  So why put them on and lose money?  For the glory of the sport?
It really must be important to a lot of people to think that 25 miles is endurance.  Its a walk in the park for the young and those with time to train a good horse.  Its all a matter of mental and physical capabilities.  They all say its a starting point to get to the greater distances or its an end to its own means...choose your own. 
But here is why i posted...
WHY, within AERC Regions is the same criteria not followed for LD riders?  Is that because it is not clear or concise?  If not, AERC needs to clarify this position.  ts
