RE: [RC] rider weight studies, part 2 - heidi

Susan, thanks for chiming in.  Always comes out more clearly straight from the original author.

Heidi also thought there was a study that concluded completion rate drops significantly when horses carry more than 23% of their own body weight.  There might be *opinions * out there stating that, but there are no peer-reviewed studies that draw that conclusion.  Believe me, I’ve read every last study on the subject published everywhere in the free world (it’s required for the thesis defense for the degree). Doesn’t exist.

Just want to clarify, that was Heidi Larson, not me.  :-)
