RE: [RC] does weight really matter? - Karen Clanin


the one think i believe that might be overlooked here is that 2 horses of equal size and equal conformation may down the road show the effects of one carrying more weight and by that i a mean how that horse carrying the more weight holds up physically in the long run.

think about it, if you have 2 humans of equal size/body type carrying back packs (one lighter one heavier) for years who do you think is going to have arthritis etc first?

for the moment, or a few years, you may be correct that "weight doesn't matter" but i think for the horse in the long run it will.
