    No I would not go because it is not fair to you or ur horse you havent practiced and they are not leged up one of you could get injured

    If ur horses are not conditioned don't breeze them you 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
