    Default Ok, what is an "ULR" anyways??

    I've been inserting Ultra Low Rider for far too long.

    This is a new thing? To distinguish them from BNR?

    Good point, although one could presumably be a BNR (relatively) in a specific region without being an ULR.

    Or the BNR may not have an upper level horse at the moment or has retired from upper level riding to coach. There is considerable overlap among ULR and BNR definitions. In my mind, an ULR is someone who is actively competing at that level. But there certainly are other opinions of this definition.

    And I suppose there are ULRs who are NOT BNRs. Kind of like not zigs are zags.

    And how does one distinguish between BNR meaning "big name rider" or BNR meaning "beginner novice rider".

    Well, I am a perfect example. I am a ULR but definitely NOT an BNR!
