Dear CB,

I know that you should have had the horse vetted, you know that you should  
have had the horse vetted, but, by the same token, when someone is considered  
"reputable" and turns out to be exactly the opposite, I strongly believe that

This brings up an important point:  I know the buyer was trying to avoid "naming
names," but she gave a description of the seller:  a well-known horsewoman,
breeder and competitor in Colorado.  Well, there is more than one person here in
Colorado that fits that description, and some people might read that and think
they know who she's referring to, and be mistaken, and an innocent person gets

I've done some checking, and I know that this horse was NOT sold by the Rocky
Mountain Training Center (owned and operated by Bobbi Richine, an accomplished
endurance rider).  I'd appreciate it if Cherie would stipulate that, and I'm

two horses there and will not hesitate to buy from them again in the future.
