So a few weeks ago I had my riding lesson, the horse that I was riding had heat in one of his front cannon bones. My instructor checked him over and he wasn't lame so I rode him lightly in the lesson, he was fine during the lesson. At the end his leg still had heat and my instructor thought it was a abscess forming, I havent seen the horse since that lesson.
So if it was an abscess I want to know how long it will last, will it last 1-2 weeks? I would like to ride this horse this weekend, but if he has an abscess obviously I can't. Also, is there anything else that could be wrong with his leg other than an abscess, whatever it was it wasnt bothering him. I can't find out anything till this weekend, I would just like to know a bit more about this topic.
