(maybe a little trailer soreness or something) a soreness that wouldnt stop anyone (not even the horse) from showing, but it would be nice to be able to take that away, so the horse isnt even teh slightest bit uncomfortable... because i dont know about you, but i am not going to back out ofan expensive show (maybe theyre not so expensive where you are, but here the price for a dressage show is a little bit crazy) just because my horse is just a little sore from a long trailer ride. ya, i know, people would definitly try and cheat and bute lame horses to compete, but if they had strict drug testing then not very many people woould get away with it... personally, i think it would be nice to be able to give my horse a little releif if we had a long trailer ride or something, but i could go without too. funny how that all works
i agree with your reasoning. trailer soreness is a different story its not like the horse is majorly ill or lame.

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.

Yeah. Some horses get weird things at shows that will be sore, but not cause the horse to not compeate(like my gelding who bruised his eye at our last show).
