rope burn

My horse Shasta got a burn on her side from the saddle it looks fine and it has healed well but I'm not sure if its going to grow hair back on that spot my dad says it probably won't? Her horse boots rubbed the hair off of her pastern also.will the hair grow back on these two spots? And if so how long will it take?

It will likely heal. Without pictures we won't have a true idea if hair will grow hair back, but unless it was really bad I'd guess it would.

You should not ride in that saddle any more - find one that fits her correctly and she shouldn't have the problem again. Likewise with the boots.

We are getting a new saddle very soon anyways. But its never done it before and it fits her just fine. We think it was part of the fender that did it. And the boots are brand new

If it's rubbing her raw it does NOT fit her just fine. And brand new or not, those boots don't fit.

If you bought a brand new pair of shoes, and they rubbed blisters into your toes, you would say oh these don't fit, I better buy different ones. Same for horses. If it rubs, causes injury - something is not right.

It fits fine. It is the clasp underneath the fender my trainer readjusted my saddle the other day and the clasp rubbed up against her. We fixed the problem and it doesnt do it anymore.

The saddle issue might be fixed, but I'd definitely toss the boots and get a new pair.

I will admit I've never used boots before and I could have put them on wrong I don't know, I could have put them on to low. I will have my trainer teach me how to put them on properly if that is the case.

Get your trainer to size them for you, if they rubbed hair off they were either on VERY wrong or they're the wrong size. What kind of boots were you using?

They are justin front boots. But im pretty sure I just put them on to low. But im not going to use them until I have my trainer take a look at everything
