      Good point. Although they didn't have vets in period, I suspect each rider
      knew a lot more about horses than most of our riders today, even endurance
      riders (average vs. average, of course; and you'd be surprised how little
      some "horse people" know!). When a living horse is a matter of life and death
      (forget the price for now), I'd think they'd be rather careful.
