[RC] Training Pace vs. Ride Pace - Jerry & Susan Milam


I watched this thread about long enough. In the comparatively little time I
have spent in this sport, I have noted during my training and the actual
event itself, there is a tremendous difference in my horse's pace and

How can you adjust for this so your horse is less likely to crash. Yes, I
know about starting late and pacing yourself, but are there other methods.
When training by yourself, I find my horse isn't as motivated to really work
the same as he naturally does in a competitive atmosphere. In a race he
pursues the horse in front of us with fire and passion. He MUST be in front.

You veterans out there have at it and thanks in advance.

In His Hands,

Susan, Fly Bye & Dandy
