 I was wondering if it is

possible that a horse likes an equipment change.  

For example: Say Horse 1 was racing

with a SR then he got switched to B and won. Then he started doing bad again and got switched

back to a SR and won.

So is this possible that the horse likes it when there is a

change?? :)

 Not really.  There's also

the possibility that the horse likes B and SR.

There are so many factors that go into a

horse winning/losing, but the fact that he's wearing new equipment from last time isn't one

of them.  :P  Whether he likes the equipment he's got on is another question...

 Okay I see well at least i

know that's not a possibility any more.  The example wasn't really accurate to the horse

I'm talking about. What my horse did was in his first few races he was using a B, F8 and NW

combo. I switched him to just B, F8 and he didn't improve so I switched him back and he won.

THEN (sorry lol), he wasn't doing well again so I switched back to the B, F8 and he weird i know.  Maybe he's just a finicky brat. :)

 There are a lot of reasons

that could happen, including not least is the horses he's running against.  Running in the

wrong equipment wont' make it impossible for him to win, just harder.

If he's doing

stuff like that with lots of types of equipment it's entirely possible he doesn't like/need

any of it.  So, for instance, if you did SR W combo he might move up a class or something.  

Not saying he necessarily would, but just that it's possible.
