    Well I am back at work after a good 2 weeks home training Comanche for his first qualifying 40km race. He is looking pretty good. Looks like the 2 weeks on 2 weeks off training is working. His resting PR has been between 32-36, and his pulse rate post heavy work in the soft sand after doing 25-27 km has been constantly around 44-48. He has not looked tired at all. Looking forward to his first race at the end of the month.

    Don't look at the horse but where you're going. He will travel straighter. Give him just a little more lead and discourage him from turning his head in to you. Practise as tho for a showmanship class. The vets are looking for unsoundness as well and it is easier for them and you if the horse travels straight.

    At the moment I am just trying to get him to trot. He is a TWH and that is not his strong suit, as soon as I am confident that he is trotting, then I will be able to practice the way I usually do.

    He's a TWH, bred to flat walk and run walk. Do you really want him trotting?

    I don't have a choice, Australian rules do not make any provisions for TWH's, and they won't let me use the FEI rules for vetting. He is the only TWH in the entire competition. I have been showing the progress I have been making to the head Australian Endurance vet to make sure I am not wasting my time for our first appearance at the end of the month. She says I am doing a great job with him. So at the moment we are on track for his first qualifying run on the 28th.

    I think the head Australian Endurance vet needs to reach around behind him and pull his head out of his rectum and get the rules fixed to be inline with FEI and every other endurance organization in the world. Seriously can't believe they are being this anal.
    If the ride is dual sanctioned I would pay the extra money to enter as an FEI ride. The file a protest with FEI that they are NOT following FEI rules and should loose their sanction.

    I know right! To make matters worse, the actual event we are fronting up for is a FEI event as well. But....I still have been told I must comply with Australian Endurance Vetting rules.

    I have noticed one downside to teaching Comanche to trot. When we are riding out sometimes, he will drop into a trot, but I just have to give him a little more contact with the bit, and then he will drop into the running walk again.

    File a protest, they are wrong. If it is an FEI event they must follow FEI rules if you enter as an FEI rider. Be advised though there are a whole string of FEI rules that you now have to comply with..
    Seriously I would be banging on the door of whoever is in charge of AERE as we speak.

    I know you are right. I think I will just let things go for now, and see what happens on the day :).
