I know a 5 stage vetting is very thorough & you can have x-rays and blood tests done & I've watched a 5 stage vetting being done (it was only for a relatively unfit 12hh pony so she wasnt worked too hard), but what happens in a 2 stage vetting? Is it the first 2 stages of a 5 stage vetting? Is the horse ridden in a 2 stage? I hope this makes sense! If any of you vet-school people could break down the 2 vettings into what happens in each, I would be very grateful & more enlightened!!!
