Would you purchase an ex-racehorse for the purpose of eventing if he/she had popped a splint before? I’ve heard from some people that their horses were 100% sound once it no longer had heat in it, but others have said that it was a prolonged issue.
I’m looking at a lovely upper level event prospect whose only issue is that she has popped a splint. The current owner says it doesn’t bother her at all; I haven’t seen the horse in person so I can’t tell you for sure if that is the case. Just interested in hearing your opinions!
