I have always wondered whether it is better to walk or trot to the finish
if:


1. It is a very hot day
2. You have 8 or 10 miles to go to the finish line
3. There is no water between where you are and the finish.
4. You feel your horse is tired.

Walking in taking two to three hours exposes the horse to a longer period
in
the heat without water than trotting in taking an hour plus where shade
and
water are available. One demands more energy for a short period, the other
demands less energy for a longer period.
I am interested in the opinion of others.     Julie Suhr
