If ur horses are not conditioned dont breeze them u will end up injuring them

They've been on all day cattle drives, w/t/c and galloped, (lots of hills too) horses get more of a work out doing that than flat work, my friend!

In case you didn't read, it went well, and I didn't "injure" anything.

Well, I get the flat work from that most people just do arena work and think of it as "conditioning" but a day at a round up is a lot more work than a day at the arena.

:)

Thanks for your concern though
