Re: exhausted horses (re: Dance Line)
sounds like a great plan...then after a few slow 25's....maybe you'd feel
like trying a slow fifty....and when you find out how much fun that is then
maybe you'd want to ,over a period of several rides...increase your
speed...always testing the waters...THEN...you'll probably decide to try
100...or a couple of multiday rides...by then you've really gotten to know
your horse...inside and out! how's the gopher vacuuming coming
