I wanted to know everyone's opinion on jumping a pony with a clubbed hoof. Some people I talk to have no problem with it, and others disagree with what I'm doing. Odin's clubbed hoof in no way shape or form makes him lame or sore, but he, like every other horse, has his days were he isn't feeling his greatest. Whenever he's stiff, people assume it's because of his hoof.. but people get stiff also when they just stand around, right? Right. On the days were he won't loosen up, I don't ride, I just work on making him more comfortable. If what we do was really hurting him or was really hard for him to do, a) he would have let me know already (if a pony doesn't want to do something.. they'll let you know.. we all know that :roll: ) and b) I would have stopped right away.. why would I want to do something to hurt him?
But anyway... sorry for that little rant. People just bug me.. well what's your opinion?
