Re: RC: Re: Re: physiology of weight/Absolutes? Nah.

I've been reading all the posts regarding HW vs LWT, etc. Have I missed it, 
or has anyone discussed the fact that the horse becomes conditioned carrying 
the weight it carries. I mean, if I jogged carrying 5 lb. weights I would 
probably get tired but slowly condition myself to carrying that weight with 
no thought. It would be as if I were not carrying any extra weight. So can it 
ever happen that a horse conditioned by a HW would perform like it didn't 
know it was carrying a HW? I'm a FW. If my husband conditioned my horse (he 
would be a HW) and then I rode the horse in competitions, would the horse 
perform better because he was carrying less weight than he was used to 

Excuse me if this is a stupid question... but I keep wondering if the HW team 
is really as disadvantaged as one would think.

So. Calif.
