Thank You so much!!! April has been amazing through all of this and her attitude is why she is doing so well. She is a string girl. Hope to have show pictures in the upcoming months!!!

Wow, she's looking fantastic. I am so happy that she's sound and back in work again (I bet both of you are happy about that too ).

Yay April! Love the side by side shots, a definite testament to her strength and yours as an owner. Kudos for seeing her through this, many could learn by the example you've set.

I just read this all page for page and I'm absolutely amazed by what you did with Apirl. She looks fantastic and if you didn't post pictures, I wouldn't have believed it. Your story is amazing and I'm so glad you were able to help April through everything. And I must say, what an amazing horse that she is for keeping her spirit, not going into depression and having the will to thrive and live when all the odds are stacked against her. Just...Amazing.

Congratulations.

Wow, what an injury. It is amazing to see this horse pull through this and couldn't have done this without your never ending care! I speak from experience with my rescued percheron. What a great job!

Wow!!! Thanks everyone so much :)

April and I are going to try a local fun indoor show on the 25th just to get her back out again (and not just a trailer ride to the vet). I am just wanting to get her back out and around other horses again so I will not be pushing her too hard.

I rode her the other night and she was feeling her wheaties!!! It is all uphill from here and it should be a fun time :) I will keep updates of the healing coming- it has been interesting to look back at day one and see how everything has progressed.

It is crazy to think that on Thursday marks 9 months of recovery for April. It was the day I decided to do what we could to save her, with the thoughts in my mind that she may have to be put down if she was in too much pain. The weeks to follow were hard; seeing her hurting, the struggle with my boarding situation at the time, and struggle with my family (mostly my boyfriend which in the end brought us closer together) understanding my time commitment needed for her healing. Thankfully I had time off saved at work to accommodate for the visits to the clinic and over the weeks to see her improve was so awesome. The first time I put her on the lunge line and she bucked and kicked is vivid in my mind- she was truly a trooper in all of the rehab.

When I was given the ok to sit and walk on her it felt like Christmas morning and things felt right again. April has done so well over the winter allowing me to get her back into full workouts again. She has been so willing to learn and just works very hard for me. As a team we have soo much to do and learn yet (like horsemanship patterns), but I feel like we will get there.

I took April to a show in February. It was an indoor show but very crowded (smaller arena) with 12-22 competitors in my 5 classes. We placed top 4 in each class with a win in English Pleasure. Yesterday we went to another show and April was very quiet and overall was very good for me. My classes were anywhere from 8-17 in size and we place top 5 in everything, getting a 1st in English pleasure and 2nd in English equitation!!!!!

Im very excited how things have worked out and cant wait to see where this summer will take us. If you would have asked me the day the accident happened if I would be showing again, I would have said no. But my horse proved me wrong and our bond is so much stronger now.

The picture is from yesterday- even though it is a bit blurry I can see (and was feeling) how hard April is working for me.

That story about Chuck, as well as OP's poor horse, are just making me tear up. It is amazing how such a horrific injury can be healed. Good job all the way around. Here is to hoping for a great and swift recovery.
