Re: [RC] Overridden and Fit to Continue - Jim Holland

Hmmmm...Have to disagree on this one. I have to weigh in on the mama's
darling to do a better job....from my experience of many years as crew
and listening to all the exchanges between riders and vets, typically,
IMHO, any rider who spills his guts to the Vet about his horse gives a
damn...big time. That also mirrors my own experience with vets....be
honest, ask for an opinion, share your own, err on the side of the
horse....and everybody wins..including the horse. Get to know the Vets
in your region, PROVE you know what you're doing...NEVER compromise your
horse, ASK for a recommendation....and TAKE it when given. That takes a
load off the Vet...I appreciate their trust....and they appreciate the
concern for the horse. Violate that trust and you will NEVER get it

Shee-it...I tried to get Otis to pull me at the 2nd Vet Check at
GERA..but he made me go back out! <grin> He really liked Magic's trot

Jim, Sun of Dimanche+, and Mahada Magic

Well, from my past experience in the horse world I sure
would not bet on mama's darling to follow instructions to
slow down! I would consider a hedged bet on the horse with
the spur marks to be taken better care of since it has some
monetary value to the owner.
