[RC] broken vein in horses back - A. Perez

 I don't think being put out wet would cause this.  Putting a
hot, wet horse in a stall is a bad idea, but turned out in a
field they will basically walk themselves out (of course he
should have water available).  The only problem is if it is cold
and the horse could get chilled, in which case they should have
a sheet or cooler on and be walked.  

I don't how turning a wet horse out would cause a vein to
rupture, though.

They're athletes! This is a partnership between horse and rider - we don't
have any jockeys out there, just pals and partners. We'd allow a rider with
a broken foot, a sore back and a nasty cold to compete - but we would never
let a horse in a similiar condition hit the trail.
