[RC] Convention - Bruce Weary

This will be my last comment on the subject of the cost of endurance riding. I am not being cavalier about the differences in people's incomes. I am simply saying that after an entire day in the swimming pool, as I climb out, drenched from head to toe, I'm not concerned about getting hit by a few raindrops. Anyone, and I don't care how much they are budgeting, has to spend thousands just to play in this sport. Some spend more thousands than others, agreed. But I wonder if as much disgruntlement is directed openly at hay suppliers, tack vendors, insurance salespeople, farriers, truck and trailer dealers, and feed stores as the AERC for the costs of participation. I bet not.
I look forward to seeing you all at the convention. It is a time to get re-centered, celebrate the accomplishments of the last season, get excited about the possibilities of the next, and honor what we receive from our horses and the great outdoors they transport us through. Bruce Weary
