My horse has just been diaganosed with a fibrin clot, is it safe to still ride?
My 13 year old mare has recently been diagnosed with a fibrin clot in the aterial chamber. It's basically a clot that is spider shaped quite big that floats in her vision. Its not there all the time and there's no way of predicting when it is in her vision. I had lots of accidents with her that have resulted in quite serious accidents and my vet says they were probably caused by the clot suddenly coming in her vision, when it's there she essentially suddenly cannot see until it moves again. I've had mixed advise and really wanted to know if anyone else has had this problem or heard of it and can advise me how best to help her and if I should carry on riding. My vet said I shouldn't hack out anymore as that's too dangerous if the clot suddenly comes in her vision. I desparately want to carry on riding but also want to stay safe and enjoy her.
