    Fwiw, it definitely helped my runner's knee. It stabilized my patella and was more comfortable and breathable than a brace. I ran a half marathon on a pretty shakey knee and by the end, my taped knee...

    Great question. I would say for most of the field, they can arrive early and their horses will stand to be tacked. For the staff, we tend to ride horses that maybe are more fit, more hot, more...
