On the other hand......I have seen horses tie-up at these events, because no
one has the brains to warm up their horses before cantering in drill.....or
running barrels fast.  In fact, at one local gymkhana, a horse tied-up after
a barrel run; was not treated, and died.  I have seen horses at shows and
western events tied all day to trailers, in the hot sun, with no water or least if some of these people are thinking of electrolytes, they
may be headed in the right direction!
