In which things have changed since 1974, but not everything

Karen at the Horse Tails blog has been doing endurance for a long time.
Recently, she dug up a 1974 AERC newsletter, and posted pictures from it on Facebook.

Karen's book about riding endurance in "the olden days" has lots of
great stories and pictures.  You can buy it HERE

Fiddle and I plan to head out to the 2015edition of the Oregon 100 ride next weekend.  Wish us luck!

(We're signed up for the 50-miler, not the 100.  That can be confusing, given the name of the ride).

Want to see what the ride looks like?

Back in February 2015, Oregon Field Guide aired a documentary about endurance riding filmed at the OR100.  You can watch it HERE.
