TROT 25 CTR
I'm an "oldie" who has yet to do her first competetive ride. Last
Nov. , I became the secretary of a local trail riding club. One of
my first suggestions was that our club hold an ECTRA sanctioned 25 CTR.
The members agreed and the ride was on!!
I'm happy to say that the ride was an unqualified success. We had 18
entrants (including 3 riders from our club), a weather-perfect day, superb support
people and no problems!! Everyone completed and every horse was in
fine shape. Everything went so smoothly....I was so
proud of our club. The riders' comments were very positive and
supportive of our efforts (we will have more comfort markers next
year). They were happy with the campsite, the food, the trail, and
we got many kudos for our friendly, helpful support people.
I just want to encourage anyone who is contemplating having a ride to
go ahead....it's very rewarding. I learned soooo much....one of the
most important is that riders in this sport show no shame about
calling their equine partners "baby" and "honey" .
Sadly, I had to withdraw from a later ride I had entered as I had
pneumonia in both lungs and my horse came up lame (muddy
pasture), sigh ....so I'm still waiting to participate as a RIDER!
Hilary....Mom, how many miles of trail did we mark in the
Home of the TROT 25!!!!
