Sorry to butt in but I just noticed that:
Kristy, you said "If she didn't want opinions, she wouldn't ask or post in critique." if you read the name of the post, it is critique my SHOWJUMPING! Not how she takes care of her horses.
She takes care of 16 horses, she is obviously doing a good job and she had the "lame" horse thoughorly checked out by the vet, I know several people whom would have continued riding as usual with no care for the horse atall.
The horse has a training program made by the vet and a nutrishionist, so he is clearly well taken care of!
The drug given to get rid of lactic acid was probably just as an extra to make sure that wasnt the cause.
Again, im sorry but it had to be said
