You have already answered your own question. You were unable to trot your horse for a little more than 30 minutes. You are still about one hour short.
I would say that Custer's horses were in worse condition to start the day than your horse was. After all they have been used hard for over a month. They were getting used up. They were not in training.
Still waiting for the details of that Fountain ride. You know it is a lie. You can't find anything. If you could you would have posted it by now.
Absolutely False First if you read and honestly presented what I stated it starts at the end of a patrol and the horse loaded to go home. There is zero discussion where I went and what I did except to go around 7 which is a very large cinder hill with a tree line on it that looks like the number 7.
The horse and myself were done for the day and about to go home when I discovered a missing department cellphone. So unless you have clairvoyance you have no clue how much trotting John had done before being loaded on the trailer. DO YOU?
I unloaded the horse, saddled and started to back track. The last stretch and the first to start out on is a two track road in the cinders. The most likely place for someone to find it or run over it was along the two track road. Since you have no clue about traffic on this particular two track road it is impossible for you to form an informed opinion. Since you most likely don't have cellphone with law enforcement capabilities you have way to have an informed opinion.
That I would be jacked up and wanting to find my phone before it was found or run over should be something that most reasonable person would understand. Those that work with me would have certainly seen that side of me before. After finding my phone I was done for the day and had no particular time to be anywhere. That I attempted bump him up John when the Department truck and Department horse trailer were in sight was really a test of what they taught us in the Arizona Mounted Police School. Energy in the rider translate into energy in the horse and sometimes that can be beyond what is normally expected of a horse.
The sole point of this example from real like is to state that horses can sense things in their rider. If you are an experienced rider and I believe you are than the reality of what I am saying rings true to you. Yet you want to make some false representation of the facts of the event.
The point for discussion here is those troopers moving down Reno Creek were jacked up and wanting to catch the Indians. If you think that the horses couldn't sense that then that is your own issue.
Part of the problem Justin is you make statements then must forget that you made them. I really don't think you intentionally lie and I know that I don't. I gave you own post where you stated
I have made it clear that the trip can not be done in under 2 hours. I would say you should be able to do it faster today than they did in 1876. But you will not get it done in under 2 hours."
Then you call me a liar and say that you never said that. Its here on the boards and I made a copy of it. What you really meant is that you don't remember making such a statement. Calling someone a liar because you can't remember something may be an indication of age or a medical issue.
You did the same thing a while back on the number of cases found at the Rosebud battle site.
This is taken from your own posts
"First off, lets get something straight . I have never had an opinion as to the number of shells used at the Rosebud Battle....I have only stated that Custer and his scouts would not take the time to count shells.
Quit putting words in peoples mouths when they have never spoken those words. You do it all the time."
Yet I made my comment after reading your own previous post. If this is not your opinion then someone else used your login.
"I don't believe Crook and his men, fired anything close to 20,000 rounds of ammunition at the Indians! Where did you come up with that number?
I really think the majority of issues are that you forget you make these posts because life is busy. That does not make someone else a liar just because you don't remember your previous posts. Also I have no clue how you call someone a liar for posting something from a book accurately. In my case I purchased a book used by the United States Cavalry at Fort Reilly when I visited the fort. I think you make some great contributions but you don't have the sole source for opinions and you sometimes forget what you posted.
