So I've been on the hunt for a new horse and found one that I really like. I do the occasional low level event, h/j show, and hunter paces a few times a year. I am not a serious competitor and I do more trail/beach riding/general hacking than I do competing. The horse I'm looking at has a previous injury. This is from the owner: "The story is, she climbed over a tractor and tore her leg open. She tore a small portion of the fascia of the muscle in the middle of her gaskin. This results in a bulge on her gaskin, but the vet told me that there is no issues with it as long as we do not ask her to do saddle seat type flexion or jump 4 foot fences. I have worked her hard enough to create some heat in the area when doing raised cavaletti, so now if I do cavaletti, I do low ones. SHe has never been lame on it."
I can't find much info on this type of injury. Have any of you guys dealt with it? What do you think??
