The board of directors would like to hear from the membership on their feelings on this issue.
Contact them here.
My feelings are....
There should be a rule against it because:
- The second horse did not have full benefit of the twelve hour ride time, as the first horse used 4.5 hours of it (which is blazing fast). So it would potentially be a horse welfare issue should the "common folk" (like me) want to attempt such a thing. Bad idea.
- For riders that ride for points, this gives an unfair advantage to a rider by being able to enter the same ride twice! That is not any kind of even field for the normal competitor.
- The history of the sport has been one horse, one trail, one rider. I like that and feel it should stay that way!
