I, too, am an OCER (Ozark Country Endurance Riders) member, and appreciate
Nancy Mitts thoughtful contribution to the LD debate. In our organization
there seems to be a remarkable amount of acceptance for each individual's
ability to participate, in whatever capacity, whatever distance.
My own concern has less to do with the distance I ride than my age - just my
thing, I guess.
Self-acceptance and lots of tolerance will eventually make this a non-issue.
