The ointment is for afterwards for our ride home, while I really love how endurance is anti medication, I think some things could be allowed but it's also the you let one in the rest come through eventually.

I train my LD horses same as I trained on the track, lots of jogging and interval training.

My STB thinks 7 miles is a warm up !

About running with the horses, I do it regularly with mine. When I don't have time to saddle at the end of the day, I just put the halter and off we go on the trails. They absolutely love it and it's a great confidence builder for a horse that isn't used to ride alone. Good exercise for the rider and training for the horse (following clues, respecting speed etc.)
And it's fun!

Glad to know other people run with their horses! It's great exercise and they are the perfect running partner. It's also great for when your horse gets a little wound up on the trail and you need to get off...just keep going on foot!
