    Yeah, that was pretty much my take. Again, darn. Oh well - my guy isn't much of a trail horse, so it isn't like I'll miss trailriding. Sigh. I was gonna work on that too, before the wet...

    The PPE might be interesting. My first event horse was 14 when I bought him, and had spent three years in pasture, no work. He was NOT a hard keeper. Had the vet out for a PPE and he said (we had...
