Re: “Unhealthy Horses

I am furious about the many UNTRUTHS in this article. My name is Martha Smith, EBW. The letters after my name stand for Equine Body Worker, a title I have worked hard to earn after several years of schooling in Northern California and other venues. I have had over 40 years owning, training and showing horses and it has been my privilege to have worked with the U of A many times. I am familiar with the horse in the article and not one of the stories about him in this article are true. Mr. Vanderpool, you should be ashamed of yourself for your lack of FACTUAL RESEARCH done here. The horses at the U of A are in fact looked after in all areas. I would like to know how many horses actually were euthanized over the long life of this program. And how would the Veterinarians who made those calls feel about the fact that their decisions were indiscriminate? The horse in this picture has had more than a few procedures that are not mentioned, involving tendons, scapula, etc which will certainly curtail a future normal, useful life. Yes, it is great he can have a life as a pet if that is possible. But the TRUTH should be told r.e. the other allegations made in this BOLD FACED LYING article.
