Re:Re: [RC] 100 Milers - Jennifer Judkins

Pat, I did not mean to imply that these words of warning were falling on deaf ears.  Some of us newbies are ultra-careful about the care and handling of our horses and can get alittle paranoid about training.  I think the forum for this type of discussion is an excellent one, but just don't be surprised if some newbies are worried they are making the wrong decision to advance.  I for one would never forgive myself if my horse were injured because I was careless or ambitious.  That said, I probably under estimate his current abilities.  So there you are, in a sort of paradox.  I think you will find most newbies are attentive to advice (whether they seem to or not) and have their horses best interests at heart (whether it looks like it or not).  Please do not stop giving advice, there is alot to be learned by all.  Jennifer.
