...The completion rate for the 160km was pretty good, most riders were simply trying to get a solid completion or qualify for the WEC. Some of the horses looked great at the end, some looked tired. I´m still trying to get full results, with gate times, recovery times, etc, it will be interesting. I think most of the eliminations were lameness, a lot of the horses don't train in the sand, and there was a lot of muscle fatigue from pushing off of the deep footing, and strain from pulling the feet out of the deep sand. Many people are realizing that they will need to train in the sand for next year´s Pan American.
