Several years ago we rented the video on endurance with Mathew McKay-Smith
(DVM and winner of '95 Tevis), in it he was talking about doing a certain
amount of work on pavement with young horses to increase bone density --
would have to watch it again to get amounts/ages, if anyone interested will
do so. As I recall, beyond a certain age (5 I think) you can no longer can
increase the density. Of course, like anything, in moderation as to much
would be detrimental (side and ring bone and arthritis).
