Penny, I think you did a really good job managing him nutritionally and I
wouldn't change a thing there. IMO, only as a nutritionist and not as an
endurance rider, I think the only thing Reno needs is experience. It sounds
like you did just fine---just give him a chance to get it all figured out.
After speaking to a lot of riders over the years, most horses with half a
brain figure it all out for themselves within the first thousand miles and
suddenly start gobbling everything in sight. So in the meantime, just keep
doing what you're doing. :-)
