    Response to HP qestion.

I need some way to figure it out so I can plan my ride based on that.

    The judges do not tell you the ideal time you need to figure that on your own and after the ride they tell you ideal time and the top six teams that came in closest are the points winners (of course there is vet check and points docked or added for that too). I am aware that the day of the ride conditions I also need to take in to mind on the day today. The one thing that stuck out to me is at the bottom page of all my info is saya "FASTER IS NOT ALWAYS BETTER". So I assuming the time will be a little slower.

    This ride is a straight 4 mile so any help would be great!!!


    I do a lot of HP's and it normally works out to an extended trot pace throughout. However, if you canter long distances, then you may be going to fast and should offset that distance by adding trot/walk sequences based upon the conditions/footing. Hope that helps.
