Re: [RC] Racing - Ed & Wendy Hauser

"...I'm wondering if an endurance horse could actually stop on a dime like
that...."

I accidentally proved that to be the case.  One time my horse and I had a
disagreement as to which way we would go at a "T" during a wind sprint up a
hill.  Suddenly we both realized that things were to fast to go either way,
I reined him in and he did the quickest sliding stop on the hard packed
gravel that I have ever experienced.  When I got back to camp I found that
he had slid out of his back shoes! They were still on, but about 1/4 inch
back from where they had been.  Obviously, given the stresses involved in
this I have never tried to get him to do it again.

It is how we "feel" deep inside that matters, cause each of us knows the
truth, regardless of how we try make it complicated.  It just isn't.
