most riders here in r5.. just tie the horse to a tree.. and get THEIR lunch
from the truck.. no horse stuff..
then they kick back and take a nap.. the poor horse just hangs there..
yes this is horsemanship.. at its best..
I really ticked them off.. when I un- load all this stuff from the assorted
packs on the saddle and start to feed and water my horse, and give
electrolytes.. and walk her around to keep the muscles warm and loose.. and do
massage.. and ride with a rump rug on the cold rides..
guess i learned this from all those 50 mile endurnace rides i do without a
crew.. no one carries the stuff for you there either..of course you get alot
of help from other riders crews when they note you are doing it alone..
lately i have noted some of the better riders starting to copy my methods of
horse care..nice-- soft sell-- learn by observing..
of course now electrolytes by any method are legal.. so thats one less
would be better for the horse if they let you pack stuff in the truck for the
