    I beg to differ from your otherwise outstanding post.  As a new, not-so-young and definitely not cute rider with 30 whole LD miles to my credit, I would argue that *especially* if the rider is brand new, they should be pulled.  If an experienced rider 'gets away' with a lameness, they probably have an idea that they misrode and will endeavor to not make the same mistake twice.  Whereas a new rider (such as myself) would probably be oblivious to the fact that they may have jeopardized the welfare of their horse, and continue to over-ride or otherwise harm their horse in ignorance.

    I think you may have misunderstood what I said.  I agree totally with what you said.  I just used the words of the vet at the ride who pulled my junior.....Did not mean it that way.  mb
