Unfortunately, no ... our ride starts on a flat meadow nearly a half-mile 
long.  However, most of the endurance riders don't go any faster than a 
strong trot.  It's the R&Ters who go off like they were fired from a cannon.  
But that's their style.
I'm just very into self-preservation, so I'm terrified of out-of-control 
I think some rides are geographically set up for controlled starts, others 
aren't.  When I first started endurance riding (back in the dark ages), 
someone literally fired a pistol into the air and it was the Oklahoma Land 
Rush re-staged.  I'm so glad we've learned better.
