tired horses

good advice on knowing what state your horse is in.  I started with a young 10 year old mare.  We
learned about each other and riding.   Currently I'm riding a 17 year old gelding, and he doesn't
have quite the recuperative ability as he would have had at 10.  So, I am riding slower and hanging
back.  I now realize that I'd rather complete than compete.  And your comment about gaging his
performance according to how he is conditioned rings very true.  I know I am not spending the time
on hime that I did on the mare's first couple of years, so he doesn't get to run with the fast pack.
maybe by the end of the season, but not now.
janetb and Handsome - uh oh the trailer's backed up by the barn tonight!
