Studies have shown that hard ground is good to an extent bc it helps build bone density.

We're not talking about roping horses...were talking about hard tight turns on slick ground repeatedly.

The effects totally depend on the horse. I long trot my horses down the levee which is hard ground but I don't do it every day

I haveranthis horse for milesonhard ground, roped cows, done ranch work for many people and he has a bad leg due to unrelated work and never comes up lame after I doit but if your horses can't handle ranch work and barrels I'm sureyou know what's best for yours. And we don't trail ride oftenbut its the best for conditioning a sport hore. In my opinion of course.

He has a bad leg but isn't lame?

I trailride...gather cows and swing ropes off my horses. I don't run them on trails tho. IMO it's stupid.

Now a long stretch of even ground I can understand doing occasionally. It really depends on the mindset of the horse and what will blow them up. I enjoy a nice relaxing trailride....not a horse that's waiting to run

You see, I think letting a performance horse stretch out on the trails or in the pasture or fallow field is good for them. I'm all for breezing and such too.

Yeah he has a bad leg and IS NOT LAME. Last time he was lame was about 3 years. Ago and it was for a whole 3 days. Must. I say it again? I have nothing to proove to you, so please just don't give me your "advice". My horses are taken care of as well as my friends 50000 doller barrel horse if not better. I would never do a thing I thought dangorous to him and as you see in the video he's a happy horse happily working. I agree QHridderKE my horse does more breezing and playing then actual work might say he's spoiled but who cares?

Somebody is riding the defensive bus.

Quit throwing your friends "50000 doller barrelhorse" out there.

Not impressed.

Actually I think your horse looks uncomfortable.

If you'd quit being so defensive you might learn something.
