Hi, just another lurker with a question. I've seen lots of stuff about
endurance and competitive riding but nothing about CMO - don't remember
what it stands for but think it's competitive mounted orienteering???? I
think?? I have a friend who is doing it but wanted to check it out here
because she seems to think she has to race her horse hard, and take
chances with her horse's legs, soundness, etc. by racing thru
brush/gullies etc. without really looking before she sends her horse
thru it. And many of the other people in the club seem to be the same.
Is this normal for this type of riding or is it just this club? Seems
like they have a lot of fun and
I'd certainly enjoy getting out and riding with friends more, but
wouldn't/couldn't treat my horse the way they do. Maybe I'm just an old
fuddy duddy or something. Comments?
