I've noticed in the horse community there are many different types of people. Some people who will rush their horse off to the vet for the slightest misstep and others who rely on good ole old school horse knowledge and experience. While I am usually more like the first person, the people I ride with are older (in their 60's) and have worked, owned, ridden, and trained horses their whole lives. I am constantly amazed by the knowledge they have. Now don't get me wrong, if a problem is beyond them they are more then willing to get a vet out, but they've handled everything from major cuts to foot issues with ease. Sometimes there just isn't a replacement for good ole fashion work.
