I used to own a quarter horse mare whose hocks were fused together. We gave her to a friend and now she basically lives out in a pasture. I am pretty sure she isn't in work, at least not regular work. My question is about her jumping with fused hocks. I have heard mixed answers w=to this question and just wanted your opinion. Because her hocks are completely fused now is she okay to jump? And if so approximately how high?
Another question about her doesn't really fit into the horse heath category but since I am writing about her I will ask it. She used to be very spooky at large bushes and thick trees that she couldn't see through. This is an example:
It was very hard to ride her in this ring because she would always be spooking at the trees. I even fell off her because she spooked at the trees once. What is a good way to kick that bad habit of fearing trees?
Thanks so so much!
