I'm not sure what you're saying the problem is here. The Pioneer Ride
program has always recognized those who complete the entire Pioneer
Ride (one horse, one rider).

Part of having and using a computer for recordkeeping is designing and
maintaining the computer program to keep the records you need. I
agree with the previous poster that "the computer doesn't handle that"
is a poor reason for not implementing a desired ride program.
