    My lovely gelding was on a walking trail ride last week, spooked a bit, and immediately went seriously lame on the left hind. Vet came out the next morning and there was no obvious swelling, but he...

    I get the feeling USEF won't really do anything about it, which perhaps pisses me off the most. :( Maybe it was an honest mistake, regardless, if you are making a living as a professional, you...
