Hi, I have a standardbred horse I am about to get from someone else on lease. He tore his rear Suspensory Ligament 2 years ago. He had it scaned 8 months ago and it was fine (scar tissue recovery, not stem cell).
The guy who owns the horse was about to jog it up 8 months ago but his son got sick. His son is only 20months old and has been diagnosed with a terminal disease which has not been seen in Australia for 14 years.
Basically I do not want to let him down, I know that I have to warm the horse up before races and then cool the ligament after races, but does anyone else have any previous experience in the same injury and any help for me. I also know I have to keep him away from jogging in sand and other soft tracks.
