How soon after vaccinations...

Do you ride your horse? Did you ride the same day? Wait one day? Two?

Dilly had her shots this morning, I'm contemplating riding after work, but am not sure if I should ride or just give her the day off and ride tomorrow.

I usually ride the same day, then give the next day off in case they're feeling a bit under the weather. If they so obviously aren't , you can go ahead and ride.

But as a rule, if there is going to be any reaction, it will happen in the initial 15 minutes after giving the vaccination.

While serious allergic reactions to vaccines would occur rather quickly, it is possible to have local reactions to vaccines that cause soreness and swelling for several days.

Mild work appears to minimize the amount of local swelling and pain associated with vaccination. Just like when you get a shot in your arm, if you move it around it doesn't stay sore as long but if you just hold it still the soreness lasts.
