Long term effects of ligament surgery
My RMH is sold :( but I have an opportunity to exercise a TWH for the winter and I have a few questions about her. A few years ago she had surgery on her right front tendon, I'm not sure of all the details, but the result she is a little lame. Sometimes its really obvious and other times its hard to see. She likes to walk fast and pace, but when she paces its more pronounced. I was told that the surgery lengthened her tendon or ligament on that side. Could she be compensating with the other leg? I'll try and get some video the next time I ride. Could this surgery have a long term effect of her just limping? Is she is pain if she wants to go faster all the time?
I know its a lot of questions, but I want to be sure that easy walking and riding will be good for her and not do her harm. She really wants to move fast but I don't want to let her if its going to hurt her in the long run.
