well, it seems that I have underestimated the power of walking after a ride
to eliminate/alleviate stiffness. Several of you responded to my query about
how make my horse look/feel fresh on the 2nd day and the common thread was
*walk, walk, and walk*.
I have always walked at least twice after a ride but most of replies
suggested an hour or so after the ride - after the horse has had a chance to
rest some - and then several shorter walks thru the nite. Very few even
mentioned ice - cold water seems to be a good thing.

Tony - I do 50 miles and I have walk an HOUR?
