[RC] horse deaths and poeple - Rusty Toth

While some are enjoying the mud slinging on these girls and please note I am
not saying they are innocent I hope we can move back to the forum of
endurance and find something positive out of this terrible death. My
greatest fear is this now questionably the 2nd horse death that happened
after a ride this season in which the rider did not seek vet help as soon as
the horse showed problems. Why is this? A lack of education or...? Is this a
growing trend with riders to "wait it out" and see if the horse gets better?
Is this an education issue AERC can help with? As a rider I have had my
horse treated at rides and asked for fluids as soon as I saw a problem.
While I am not proud that I took too long to see the issue I am very proud I
put my horse above all else and asked for help.

I must believe that something good can from these horses lives. I realize
this may be naive and optimistic but one can hope.
