Landmarks & Awards
This was posted as a comment on the turtle topic, but I thought that it was pertinent enough to be posted in its own right. I was not aware of how this process worked for riders who are interested in primarily mileage vs. racing for points. I figure since I wasn't clear on it, others may not be either.

QUESTION: Are the rider mileage program and equine mileage program for open endurance rides of 50-100 miles? If you move up from LD to endurance do your miles go with you, or do you lose credit for all those LD miles?
Rider Mileage Program: Upon completion of 250 miles, riders receive a Rider Mileage patch and a 250 mile chevron. Additional chevrons are awarded at 500, 750, and 1000 miles and at each additional 1000 miles. Riders achieving these mileage plateaus are acknowledged in Endurance News.
Equine Mileage Program: Horses will receive a medallion for each 1000 miles completed. Plateaus are acknowledged in Endurance News.
The LD awards are awarded to rider, and / or equine. Is this award regional as well? And do weight divisions count? Such as Heavy weight (horse carrying heavy weight rider all season etc.)
Limited Distance Program: Upon completion of 250 miles of Limited Distance Rides, riders receive a Limited Distance Rider Mileage patch and a 250 mile chevron. Additional chevrons are awarded at 500, 750, and 1000 miles and at each additional 1000 miles. Riders achieving these plateaus are acknowledged in Endurance News.
Limited Distance Equine Mileage Program: Upon completion of each 500 miles in Limited Distance sanctioned rides, the equine will be awarded a medallion. Plateaus are acknowledged in Endurance News.
