My horse became lame last Saturday. It was to the point where she was limping severely but only when we trotted. Walking was fine. Sunday she was the same. So I called the vet out and he came on Monday. She was a LOT better. I really didn't even notice it anymore. He confirmed she was a little lame and gave her some medicine (I don't know what it is because it's in German.). Anyway, he said to only walk her for a week. (he said I could ride her but just walk.) It is now Friday and I rode her today and she is still lame. I was just curious if there was a general time table for a horse getting over lameness. Does it take weeks or months? The vet is coming back out this upcoming week but I was just curious.
I understand you guys don't know the horse or the severity of the problem so I understand if you don't have an answer.
Oh and should I have even been riding her? Would that have an impact on her getting better? The vet said I could but only at a walk like I previously stated.
Thanks for any replies!
