Re: [RC] questions! - Barbara McCrary

I sleep poorly the night before.  The horses are in a high metal corral, nice and safe.  We put out a lot of hay and let them nibble all night.  Breakfast: Fruit (no orange juice....too diuretic), cereal.  Usually can't eat very much as I'm too nervous.  Snacks:  Any kind of nutrition bar....whatever kind you like.  I like Balance Gold...more like a candy bar than some others and nicely filling.  Lots of water.  Lunch back at the trailer:  Yogurt settles nicely in a nervous stomach, very nutritious.

Subject: [RC] questions!

Okay... I've posted about the ride, now more questions.  A whole list of them! ;)
First of all: how do you sleep at night before the ride?  What do you do with your horses?  I am looking for alternatives to sleeping in the bed of the truck and just tying...
What do you eat for breakfast?  I had to survive on 2 hard boiled eggs and some water... which, I don't doubt is more than some people get!
What do you pack for snacks?  Are there any particular brands of anything that are especially helpful and/or filling?
I'm sure I'll come up with more questions later, lol..

Lose those love handles! MSN Fitness shows you two moves to slim your waist. ============================================================ Riding alone is when you teach a horse all the "tools" and "cues" he needs to handle the trail, to hold a speed, deal with hills, etc. It's also where you develop the "bond" that causes him to "defer" to you before losing his cool. ~ Jim Holland ridecamp.net information: http://www.endurance.net/ridecamp/ ============================================================
