Re: [RC] French system - Truman Prevatt

It may be more to train in heat and especially humidity than to get flat sandy ground. There is quite a difference in working in humidity than semi arid conditions. Much of Europe is in the temperate climate zone with climates very similar to the Eastern US. It is quite easy for us in the Eastern US to go to the Wester US - much of which is semi arid with low humidity - and do quite well. I would not expect anyone going from Europe would have any issues in Dubai for the same reasons.

It can be more difficult to come the other way. If I lived in the US west and wanted to prepare for a WEC in Europe or especially Malaysia I would expect training to acclimate to higher humidity would be necessary.

Why do you need to travel to Florida to practice flat, sand and hot weather. We don't do that. Many good riders just stay at home to condition their horses with the going and trails they have at home. I never even trailer my horse for 200km to go to North of Belgium (flat and sandy) to prepare for Dubai races.

Of course, one of the big reasons it would have trouble working here is =

distance. This is a big country, and say I had a good quality horse =

with international potential, how am I going to get it to Florida to =

practice on flat sand in hot weather, (which I'd have to in order to win =
