Re: RC: Buying First Endurance Horse

One cause of a horse that is a hard keeper, particularly if they didn't used 
to be, is over conditioning, or in a non endurance rider, just flat riding 
the horse too hard/fast.  I overconditioned my mare the first couple seasons 
and my friend also overcond- itioned her horse.  Maybe the horse WAS tired 
out, and the owner was too blind to see it, or didn't realize that a horse 
will run just to get it (the ride) over with.  I have to be careful with my 
mare, as somedays she likes to go, but other days she's just in a big hurry 
to get home.  jeri
