Bute will not cover up a serious Issue with an injured horse. I know as bute is Legal in NRHA and I am sure that is why FEI is now looking at allowing it. Part of the working to get everything ready for Reining in the Olympics.
I use Bute on my horses at shows at times. To me it says more that in the NRHA you MUST drop bridle to the judge and they go over our horses with a fine tooth come then saying you can not give your horse a bute.
