Re: [RC] what's the point... - Heidi Smith

For example, a good friend of mine almost lost an endurance horse at a
50 mile ride in Alabama.  The horse was on medications and IV's and
barely pulled through.

So it had to be overriding, or endurance-related, you say?

The horse never left camp!  It coliced before it was ever saddled up.

Yeah, I wonder why it is that stuff happens at rides that also happens day
in and day out in normal veterinary practice, to horses that would never in
a million years even come CLOSE to an endurance ride, to be treated by vets
who have never come within spitting distance of the sport either.  Darn, I
wonder how THOSE illnesses and deaths can be related to the sport...
