    RE: [RC] Completion rate of Masters Series - Maryanne Stroud Gabbani

    Actually, Bob, as Truman said in his answer to my post, you can train for everything, but speed kills. Sure, you can train for all types of terrain, but if you insist on riding like a bat out of hell.....well, maybe your horse can do it once or twice, but not enough to rack up some serious mileage. That's what I have against all these high stakes races that induce people to go for it once and then not have the horse to ever do it again.

    Basic theory then Truman is if the track is hard the horse will get pulled for lameness, if the track is soft the horse will get pulled for metabolic.
    So, we must chose our tracks for a medium condition and then we can finish?
    No, I believe we must condition our horse for all types of terrain and ride accordingly.
