    I really wish that the TROT rides were longer. They all seem so short that they're hardly worth driving too

    They are not CTRs, they are generally geared for pleasure riders (alot of us older than younger) who fly a desk 40+ hours a week. There are some around 3 hours, but to ask folks who only ride a few days to do more is a stretch imho.

    I wish I could go. I'd love to do more judged pleasure/trail rides. But I'm down in NC at the beach currently and won't be back til very late Saturday. I'll need Sunday to rest up before work that night. Lol.

    I certainly get that they aren't CTR's, but even the local trail clubs like LOMH, TriState, Circle T etc have at least 4 hour rides and those are also mostly older riders. I like that TROT unlike the others requires helmets and coggins, but I can't justify trailering two hours to ride two hours. I guess it was my bad though- I should have read through more than just the places they ride when I joined. Oh well, wasted money on my part, but next year I'll know not to join.

    Maybe consider siging up as a ride leader and hosting a long ride?
