    Tipping my helmet to Potato again.

    Prudence and Praus: Thank you! The volunteers were awesome all day, but folks at places like Red Star, where no one had crew, you guys were angels.

    Awesome. He sounded too well-conditioned to have a RHR of 50! And now that you know his RHR, you might start routinely palpating a six second count. Maybe one day you get almost 5 beats instead of 4...

    Recovering so quickly to 50 or 60 is great but it would be good to know his true resting HR. It is more likely in the 40s or even the 30s. Check when he has no reason to be a bit elevated (not when...

    I love starting a young trail horse by hand leading--though not driving.
    With hand-leading (always with good gloves on), the youngster is taking its direction from you, not the other horse. You can...

    Whatever you're imagining, yeah, probably has happened. And the loose horse thing, too. A friend once caught three different loose horses while he was running. I ran past my horse when she went...

    That's an inexpensive set-up (you can make it for less than ten bucks, um worth of euros), and I can see two reasons in the thread already why you might want this set-up. I've made it and used it,...

    Go Irish. Yes, hiking together is good for the bond. Bring a tie rope, bring a lunch. Or go for 15 minutes if that's all the time you can make.

    Amarch,
    The other runner is going to catch up to a tied horse that Hungarian will leave for her.

    I've done quite a few. Bags of fun, great conditioning. Here're some nuggets: each rider carry a tiny knife, carry an extra tie on the saddle and have one in the crew bag at the vet check; fastest...

    A nice no is a good enough sentence.
    If the person asking a favor pressures or asks why after hearing a no, then s/he wasn't really asking. It was a demand.

    Not answering bad questions is a...

    This year, all but one check for the 75 and 100 were in camp. I'll send you the maps we were given for all distances, if you like. Given that you've done and are going to be doing several more 2-dy...

    Mt A is my fave. Lovely RD. Plentiful water. Great vets. Nice footing. Incomparable site. I've only done up to 55 there - I think there were about eight folks riding the 100 a couple of weeks ago....

    That horse is under a 3. If the new AERC rules pass, no horse under 3 enters. But this was not an AERC race. It's cringe-inducing that FEI judges passed the horse to race as is.

    I've used scawbrigs, IH, side-pull and bosal, but my fave is the cross-jaw. You can make it (or any of these) for about 12 bucks. Your first one might take an hour. After that, you could do it under...
