Re: [RC] Time off before 100s - heidi

Tapering is a good ideal (and probably what most people do), but
tapering is not completely stopping training. It is modifying training
to peak for an event. Throwing a horse in the pasture for three weeks
prior to a ride would be the same as a runner sitting on the couch,
watching TV and eating chips and dip instead of working out for three
weeks before a run.

Tapering makes a lot of sense, stopping all training doesn't.

I guess "tapering" means different things to different horses.  As I watch
my horses cavort and tear around in the pasture, I have a hard time
finding it to be the equivalent of my sitting on the couch, watching TV,
and eating chips and dip!  ;-)
