Re: [RC] [RC] !Robert Miller, DVM on Barbaro &horsemanship toda - Dawn Carrie

He makes a lot of good points...but sadly, he perpetuates the myth that endurance riders are a bunch of yahoos who would override our horses and kill them if it were not for vet checks.
<<If it weren't for the frequent veterinary checks, which are mandatory, can
you imagine how many endurance racing horses would die because of their
riders' consuming desire to win? >>
Unfortunately, it only takes a one-liner like this in an otherwise good article to perpetuate the stereotype.
