Re: [RC] weights for FEI - Charles

Unfortunately, my solution would have been something like just eat a bit more (an extra stop at Burger King every day) and gain the weight.  That way it's spread evenly over my body (more or less, some thigh, some arms, some gut, etc).  By riding carefully, my horse will get used to carrying the extra weight, and it won't be "dead" weight (at least not till I get my heart attack or stroke). 
PS: Just so you know, this is part of my insidious plan.  I'll have everyone gain weight so my weight won't be such an issue.

Subject: [RC] weights for FEI

It specifically says on the entry that no water bottles can be weighed in with the rider.  But aside from that, where can one buy the weight pads?  I need to add at least 10 pounds, which is a lot of dead weight to add to the horse.  Do the weights in the pads shift at all?  That could be bad news over 100 miles.  Anyone out there have any more comments, advise or ideas about this?
