The great benefit of roadwork is that it actually causes the bones to grow more cells, particularly in younger horses.
There are also too many light-boned stallions being marketed as NH sires, especially in Ireland, and covering gigantic books of mares. What on earth is a brittle horse like Milan doing with 3 figure books?
A lot of these Sadler’s Wells stallions are not particularly robustly built, but after the exploits of the admirable Istabraq, they’re all the rage.
