That she was entirely to blame for the dead horse. You assume that you know everything about the owner because of a flowery eulagy she wrote for her horse on FB.
Go to horse memorials on HF and lets trash talk them too.
Because the owner has a different phylosophy of horse ownership, she deserves this. If only people that believed what you do should own a horse, there would be very few owners indeed.
I am ashamed of this thread, the way you all are attacking the owner of this horse. This thread never was slanderous against CA, but you all sure have crucified the owner.
I'm just putting myself in the owner's shoes.

If somehow I turned Lily into a horse that tried to buck people off, if she was so far gone that I was so desperate for help that I had to send her away for extreme training, and then for whatever reason she died, how can I honestly say it was anyone's fault but my own? That I didn't do my job from day 1, or that I bit off more than I could chew?

What philosophy is that you are responsible for overseeing your horse's training, you are responsible for where you send your horse, you are responsible. If you knew your horse was going to a program where she stated horses supposedly die, then it was your decision to send them there. I'm not saying CA isn't also responsible as a professional, but you don't have to send your horse to CA if you were well aware of the dangers.

Which is why my "philosophy" is not to send my horse anywhere that I can't go see him every single day to ensure he is being cared for properly. Didn't happen with this horse, didn't happen with Cleve Wells, didn't happen with Shirley Roth. And if that causes less people to own horses, then maybe it's for the better...

THis thread reminds me of the old game where you start a story and send it around the circle whereby it morphs into something with little semblance of the story that was started. It is getting redundant. Horses die. In training, in their stalls, in their fields, in the wild it is a fact, and sometimes there is NOONE to blame.

I don't mind arguing with myself. It's when I lose that it bothers me.

Why not? It makes as much sense as some of the other stupid thrown about this thread. =)

Or they die under Clinton Anderson's watch!
With no fanfair, just a "**** happens"!
Go figure.

The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago, the second best time is today.

So, what you're implying is, if it wasn't CA, there'd be no big fanfare fuss?

Go figure! xD
