Re: [RC] [RC-Digest] Vol: 03.6211 Doing a 100 - Chipnml

Amen to Julie's statement.  My horse Dezi is certainly no super-horse.  We usually finish at the back of the pack.  But he has learned to eat and drink well, and he's just a really fun horse to ride...just trots and lopes along on a loose reiin, with a just a sidepull.  One of my biggest regrets is I didn't do a 100 with Cheers, mainly  because I just kept putting it off.  I decided I wasn't going to let that happen again, so when Dezi was going well the second season we did our first 100. I figured "why not?"  It's not like I'm the type of rider to ride him past his capabilities, so the worst thing that could happen is I would pull.  As it turned out we did complete that ride, and it was just an unbelievably awesome experience.  No matter how much you try, you just cannot describe it!
