    I think the LNTs and no names that drug are just less sophisticated with what they use. It's ACE and PerfectPrep and other widely used stuff.

    Agreed. Once a rabid pony mom at the local unrated level learns how to give ace it becomes much more attractive than lungeing ;-)

    "No prep needed" used to mean no lunging, now it means no Dex or magnesium.

    I have to ask, could the BNT's make it as far as they do with their success without drugging?

    .
    Nothing really new there either.

    in the 'old days' we did not show year round but whoever had the fastest van was in the running for AHSA awards.

    Show on Long Island in the morning, pedal to the metal to NJ , Westchester or CT for more points in the afternoon.

    True, those horses did get a rest after indoors but they were right back at doing multiple shows the same day come April or May. So it's not exactly like they had an easy show schedule.

    Bute has been around for a long time. The 'old timers'' were avid users of bute.
