I would have said something a long time before you did. That horse is horribly skinny, riding him would have been the last thought on my mind had my horse lost that much weight. Get a new vet since your current one thinks it's a grand idea to ride him as he looks currently

People with true credibility and integrity don't need to tell other people how great they are.

Sorry, I work for a vet and have for years. If the vet I worked for went out and saw the condition of this horse and okayed it for riding and not noting any issues, then this "vet" should lose his/her license.
I know you feel your did your best, but this horse did not get in this condition in a week or two. This is a month or two long process, so something is odd here.
I think there might be two sides to this story and we are only hearing the OP side. Would love to hear from the barn owner.

The OP has made plans to move and has gotten some answers she was looking for. I don't see anything more that can be learned from this thread. I hope people here have learned that questions for the barn owner do NOT resolve concerns. Only action does. Please, learn from this thread that you don't wait to correct an obvious problem.

With this, the thread will be closed. It may, or may not reopen once the team decides one way or another.
