Riding after surgery
It's been about 4 weeks now since Sandie had a lump removed from her side, right where the girth goes. Luckily, the lump was nothing serious, but she does have a scar about 5 inches long right behind her front left leg (like I said, right where the girth goes). Her stitches came out about a week and a half ago, and the scar looks good, very clean nothing on it anymore.
But I haven't ridden her yet because I'm concerned about putting the girth on and rubbing the fresh scar. My girth is fleece, but the pressure I'm sure can't be good for a fresh incision scar. Does anyone know about how long I should wait before I saddle her up to ride again?
