I didn't think drag riders cared whether they got a completion or not?

I thought that was the point of drag riding? You did just portions of the
trail, at a slow pace, and picked up the bits left behind (be they ribbons,
markers, heart monitors, easyboots, people, horses, etc...). Why would they
care about completions?

I remember reading Karen's post about drag riding at night and
thought "coo, that sounds more fun than actually doing the race..."
If only I had a horse I could do it on... anyone with a spare horse
in No. Cal who wants some company drag riding? <grin>
