[RC] [RC] 100s - when is your horse ready? - sherman

Multi-day 50s would at least give you a clue. No, it’s definitely not the same as doing a 100, but if your horse looks good starting and finishing the 2nd day (no day of rest in between rides), there’s a good chance that your horse is ready to do a 100 without being whupped at the end. Don’t you think?

Until you do a 100, how will you know how your horse is
going to deal with it? I agree that many horses would probably
be quite capable of 100s if managed correctly, but the flip side
is, if you're wrong, you end up with one of the whupped-looking
ones and have to suffer the consequences of your own conscience.
