I for one get sick of people pulling out before the awards ceremony. This is the time where we chat, listen to stories, catch up with other riders.. etc. Its called COURTESY, something that so many people lack today. For one thing, even though I've been riding going to rides for over 5 years, I am STILL excited to get my ribbon, or T-shirt, or Turtle.. and if we all take off who is going to cheer on our junior riders? and our newbies? We should be supporting each other, not turning up our noses. Even the ride I got pulled at I stayed for the awards, and cheered for everyone else. Its called being a good sport..

I agree 100% on this! I would also add that it's a courtesy and consideration for your horse to not make it endure a trailer ride home right after a ride.

We set up our Ride the Divide so that people would have a full day (Monday, Memorial Day) to travel after the ride so people didn't have to rush home Sunday night after the ride, but people left anyway. It's a bummer from my point of view as a RM to see a practically empty camp and have so few people at the final dinner. I'd like to throw a party that last night, but you know how it is when you throw a party and no one comes.
