I'm Jessica, I'm new... Madison's my horse.
I was wondering if anybody here had ever jumped a horse with a torn cruciate ligament. He tore it back when he was 12 and he's 19 now. He's sound on it besides from some arthritis that he works out of after some walking and trotting. Now he's pretty much a giant dog. I walk, trot, and canter 1 or 2 times a week but it's killing me not to jump! I just want to do some small stuff, maybe a foot or so but the last thing I want to do is hurt him, he's taken care of me for the last 12 years. I jumped him over a small log on a trail ride and he still loves it! Does anybody know if this is ok?
