RE: [RC] French system - Leonard.Liesens

Title: RE: [RC] French system

I agree with you D'arcy. It is nice (for horse and also rider) to switch to varied going. One day in the hills, one day on the flat for practicing canter. But some can not choose and have to train all the time on the flat. C'est la vie

I wouldn't want to train my horses on flat lands
unless that is the only option that I had.  I have
found being up in the higher elevations has
conditioned my race horses far better than being in
the lowland. 

Also, Merced County, CA is FULL of flat sandy loam
soil.  As is most of the central valley of CA.  Then
there is Arizona, New Mexico, and most of the south
east.  Unless you are in the higher elevations of
those states with their red clay.  At any rate...who
would want to train on flat, sandy soil, all of the
time and why?
