Hi all! I'm new to the forum and to barrel racing. I'm working with a couple of good riders in my area to help me train my OTTB for barrels and poles. He's coming along nicely and really enjoys the mental challenge. Currently we are working on a lot of basics and have begun trotting the patterns.
My horse is an 8 YO OTTB gelding who raced until he was 5. He got tangled up with another horse coming out of the starting gate and bowed his left front tendon. Treatment and rehab were already done when I bought him. My vet has looked at the leg and did an ultrasound. The leg looks ugly, but vet said he is ok for any type of riding. What I'm wondering is what type of leg protection you all recommend for a horse with this type of old injury? I've been working him in bells and simple splint boots up front. Thanks for the help!!
