Re: RC: soreness from rides
I have to agree with Truman. I have never been sore after riding the
nice gelding who accepts my instructions with only an occasional
question. That includes 100's. The mares and the other gelding are
different stories. Except the last 100 I did where I guess the mare
thought we were on a training ride since we stayed with her friend and
hardly saw anyone else all day.

My dear Tina,
The soreness comes form trying to convince your horse that he really doesn't
want to go that fast - that is holding the sucker back from self destruction.
Soooooooooo let him go. If you live through it, he may get the idea that it
isn't all that much fun when you take him back out for the second 25.
AyyyyyyyRabbbbbbbbbs aren't the smartest creatures on this green earth, but
they do finally get the idea. Hopefully you live through the training process
On the other hand there is something to be said for better living through
chemistry. Ibuprofin early and often does work.
