Re: [RC] does weight really matter? - Kristen A Fisher

Probably similar to training at altitude then performing at sea level, yes?

There *was* a study done in Australia. What they found was that when horses became accustomed to carrying a heavier weight the pulses eventually evened out and the horses carrying more weight had around the same pulses as the ones carrying lighter riders. The only advantage they found was when the horse trained with a HW and then switched to a LW for competition. Then the pulse ran lower. So...can you get your husband to train your horse for you?
