Thanks everyone!!! Your thoughts and prayers have definitely helped the healing process along. Depending on how early I get out of work tomorrow I might try riding otherwise Sunday for sure

I've been lunging April and she is looking strong on her hoof (and a bit cocky).

My boyfriend and mother helped me out tremendously and April was extremely strong through everything. I am just relived to know that the worst is over

The progress is amazing! So great to hear she's feeling good, she deserves to be a bit cocky!

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

Wow! If not for the pictures I would not have been able to imagine how bad the wound was. Thank you for sharing the pics - if not for them, I don't know if I would've thought an injury like that would be possible to heal. You are very fortunate that your vet and farrier know what they are doing. Your story is very inspiring. Thank you for sharing.

If it's worth keeping, it's worth taking care of.

I finally got to ride again!!!! The picture is from Sat (not the greatest pic) and I also got the chance to ride again last night :) The one downfall is that it is starting to get cold out again so time for more layers!!!!

April behaved very well and has shown no signs of soreness. She is loving life in a big pasture with three other horses.

That is wonderful to hear/see! It looks amazing! This is one of those cases where I wonder if you should call out the vet, or the farrier? Is your farrier working with your vet? I'd imagine she might have needed antibiotics or something?

She's a lucky horse to have an owner that loves her so much!

April was on antibiotics for a week after the accident happened (17 weeks ago). The vet and farrier have been working together to decide the best way to approach everything (at the appointments at the same time). I just finally got the "OK" a week ago to start light riding 10-15 minutes a time and watch for lameness or soreness. She has been really good through most of the healing process
