    It makes me happy that you are going to care for the horse, ridable or not. Good for you!

    Secondly, what did your vet clear you for? And your farrier's advise is going to be extremely important as well. Most farriers can do special shoeing that helps dramatically. A lot of horses with navicular can be ridden, just carefully and according to their limits.

    The vet just has said that she is ok now that it is probably the early stages. I am going to have my farrier put special padded shoes on her. And if I have to I will just take it slow, there are alot of other horses to ride at the farm if I need them.

    Ok I am sooo excited. I had the farrier out and he put special shoes on my baby. It brought her pasterns right back up and she's not so pigeontoed. I only got them on yesterday but already she is walking taller. I just think that farriers are amazing people. I have decided to breeed my horse this year that way after she passes I will have a little of her left. I hope I get lucky and get a similar attitude

    We have a horse with navicular at our barn, she does western pleasure. The horse is sore when you first start riding but after a while she is fine. I don't think that you will have much problem, I know that this owner doesnt. There also going to breed her this year.

    With having navicular and all the horse is worth 12,000 dollars. She would be worth more if she did not have navicular.

    Wow, by saying that she is worth that much I feel like we are one of those snobby barns or something....Trust me, she is the most expensive horse on our property. But just down the street there are horses worth like 70,000 dollars.....
