I have an older horse with end stage osteoarthritis, he really enjoys being ridden but ever since he's been diagnosed I've been cautious to ride him. He has bone rubbing on bone, he also has bone spurs as a result of the arthritis. We don't know what caused this, they wont inject him anymore because he has been injected so much before we got him that it doesn't work much anymore. :( The vet said he can be ridden walk trot, and that it wont hurt him to be ridden.
What are your thoughts on riding him? I really just want to let him sit in the pasture and keep him comfortable but where he loves being ridden and worked I don't want to not ride him if I can. Because when I go out to get my other gelding from the pasture to ride he'll fallow us up and watch me ride from the pasture. :'(
