I found an amazing Appendix jumping mare, 8 years old, and I can't think of ANY cons about her except one thing. She had tendinitis as a 3 year old.. On her right hind. I realize what it is, usually caused by overload on the soft tissue, blah blah blah. But getting to the point, is there a possibility that she could still jump comfortably without an issue? I mean, the leg would most likely be more susceptible to injury and every horse is different.. She jumps 3 feet, has a great jump, I watched her being ridden and videos of her being ridden, nothing on her right hind that I can detect although I will be sending the videos to my trainer and she can probably detect any lameness there is. I will absolutely do a vet check, although I will not be able to be there as she is 7/8 hours away, so it would be over the phone. Opinions anyone?
And yes, I would be jumping her, doing trails, some dressage and such. I do not know how tall I would jump, just depends on how I progress! Thanks in advance!
