Bone Bruise

Hopefully there is someone else out there with a similar experience!

I'm currently selling my horse, and have had a bunch of people out to test ride him, etc. around a month ago, a young girl was out to ride him, and while taking him over a jump, he knocked his hind leg hard on the pole due to a poor set up. he was noticeably lame, and was given the afternoon off with liniment and hosing. there was heat and swelling, which persisted for around a week. the vet was out and took x-rays, confirming that he had a bone bruise. DMSO was prescribed, and we put that on daily to reduce the inflammation. its been a couple of weeks and he is still showing discomfort (ie: reluctance to pick up his hoof for picking, doesnt want to move forward under saddle). he's had the entire time off from riding, until just recently ive taken him out for small walks-but he refuses to trot, and behaves as though he would buck me off before doing so. i dont know if he needs more time off, or if there is another underlying problem (like a sore back?).. please help!

Ouch, poor guy!

I would think it's still sore. I got kicked in the shin once and it took a LONG time to quit hurting when I'd stand for very long. Still have a little knot on that bone, but it doesn't hurt anymore.
