I while ago I had a person out to check Cougar (TB Gelding - 7yr old) out, just a general check over. The man, which is a qualified muscle therpist, said he has some old muscle tears in his neck, shoulder and the side of the rear. Most probally caused by a fall in the paddock quite along time ago (before we had him). When he pointed it out where they were, and you could really notice where it is because there was no muscle building up around the area.
The man then said he couldnt be jumped over a 1m, not that he couldnt, just that he wouldnt be able to. Before that, he was a test dummy for a new cross - country jump in the club, which measured 1.20 x 1.40 wide ( ski jump ).
He doesnt short step, nor react like he is in pain.. He absolutally loves to jump.. its a shame..
Anyways, I was just wondering if you could help me with any excercises I could do to help him? If there is any herbal medicine or something..
Thank you in advance
