New OTTB with a new gimp? Are these common with new off the track TB's?
I aquired a horse from my vet on Friday that just raced on 9/8. He is sweet and quick to learn--very patient (a perfect personality). My trainer, after riding him for the second time said she feels a "gimp" in possible front right leg. As I am not that good at seeing these types of negative movement, the trainer said she definatley felt it. As she pushed him to trot, he put his ears back and was hesitant to go forward. I called the vet, he stated he has not ever had a soundness issue or gimp, and to ride him more as we are asking him to do something he has never done before. Any advice?
I am new to OTTB, and do not want to be stuck--I have until Friday to keep him or let him go back.
