[RC] newbie with a concern - Sbolinge

I remember a study that was done one year at the Tevis (could have been Garlinghouse who headed it). Anyway, the point of the study was to see the correlation between a horse's body condition and performance at the Tevis. The conclusion, if I remember correctly, was that the horses with some fat did better than the skinny horses. Years ago there were more skinny horses because people incorrectly thought they would do better in endurance that way....enough  information out there now that there isn't any excuse for them to show up at rides as thin as you described.
