[RC] LDs Are Different - sherman

Because the 100s are significantly tougher on the horses even with their
higher level of conditioning, same as 50s still getting pulled at the same
rate as LDs even with their higher level of conditioning because the longer
miles are in fact harder on the horses. Makes sense to me.


Yep and you would think the 100 mile horses were even more prepared than 
the 50 mile horses - but alas the metabolic pull rate for the 100 mile 
horses is a little over 3 times that of the 50's.

Be careful in reading too much into pull rate data.  On average, you 
are dealing with a more prepared and more experienced ridership on 
50s, so you may be comparing apples and oranges.
