[RC] Time between rides - Laura Hayes

The question being bantied about regarding time off before and after 100 made me think about how we used to do several rides in a row and not work so hard at making a science of it---so I looked up a few records of people I admire in this sport. 
The first one was Kathy Arnold and her mare, Easter Charm.  In 1985 they did a 100 on June 14, a 50 on June 29, the Big Horn 100 on July 13 (2nd and BC) and another 100 on 7/27 (another 2nd place) with a 50 on Aug 3.  This horse went on to do many many more successful rides for years.  The bottom line, in my humble opinion, is that there is no cook book method.
