Re: RC: tying-up

<< Is there any genetic component to a horse tying-up?  I am looking at a 4 
 yr. old filly whose dam has completed a lot of 100 mile rides.  But she 
 also did not finish several because of tying-up.  It was early onset, 
 shortly after starting the ride.  Should I be concerned about purchasing 
 this filly as she could have a genetic disposition to tyup also? 

More likely she has a metabolic predisposition. Until the problem is diagnosed
and solved, I'd avoid her.
