I'm so glad your'e back and actively participating again:)!

When I first got on the group list, you recommended the GNC product
"Heavy Weight Gainer" powder...vanilla flavored. That has been the best
purchase I've made in years. It really does alleviate at least 50% of the
muscle soreness in me and I'm sure my horse feels the same way.

I use it pre-ride and post ride if it's LD. My friend who is doing 2
day 100's now uses it pre-ride, once during and finishing the ride each
day. The horses are done pre and post.

It's a great product! Thanks for recommending it.:)

Happy Tails
