Re: RC: XP junior


SO SORRY you got so badly injured.  Yes--a lot of my injuries happened
at home and at work--not riding in endurance rides.  MaYBE  because we
are MORE careful when we ride?

Is the "Hugh and Gloria" you mentioned "Vanderford"?  They are the
nicest people!  I still remember when they gave my mare a ride to the
hiway(up a very STEEP hill) out of one of Churstie Evans' rides( near
Burney) when my old truck was heating up and I was afraid I couldn't
make it up the hill-loaded!(the rest was mostly 'downhill" to Red Bluff
and at night when it was cooler)

They were SO nice.  I was SO tired and worried, and they took my
mare(making a special trip just for her as they were staying in camp for
the night) and met me at the top of the hill and I loaded up and made it
safely home.  They are always helpful--the epitome of what endurance
people are known for.PLEASE take it easy and heal.  You want this to
mend fully.  And I know--it will be REALLY hard!  Glad to hear your
gelding LIVED to see another day and wasn't badly hurt.
