RE: [RC] re: 100s discussion - Kristen A Fisher

What I want to know is, when someone says their horse doesn't like 100s, or
isn't ready for 100s, or needs rest after 100 - so many people jump in and
tell them they are wrong.

The only person that knows that horse and is qualified to make a
determination on what the horse can/can't/should/shouldn't do is its

SO WHAT about the way you ride your horse - other people don't want to ride
their horses that way. Stop arguing with them about it.

I have to get some clarification here...

First, David LeBlanc said:
 "I only have the one horse for myself - he'd need a lot of 
time off after a 100, and I'd rather do a couple of 50's."  
WHY???  Why would your horse need so much time off that it 
would cramp your style, David?  I've done three 100 milers in 
a two month period.  Lots of other people have done a 50 
miler within a few weeks of a 100 miler, then another 50 the 
next month.  I don't understand?
