6 month point, nice bright arena! Pleased with where we are at. Just continuing the canter work to build his strength and balance. Been doing some small cavaletti's when I have a lesson and he's picking his feet up nicely. Trying to hack on a weekend as much as our lovely UK weather will allow and he had his first trip out in the wagon to the arena in the videos. Only 20 mins up the road and he travelled lovely. :)

I just read through all of this and it's awesome. I'm glad that a different vet gave a better diagnosis.. And it's been a quicker recovery than what it first sounded like it would be. Good job!

Thank you. :) still yet to find out if he will be happy to jump again with confidence but don't intend to rush to find out at this point. Carry on getting his fitness up there for another month or so and then as with everything else we'll start small and see how we get on. If nothing else these small updates will hopefully give encouragement and hope to anyone else that might be unfortunate enough to have this happen to their horse. Thank god for 2nd opinions!

Well I am writing this from my bed at the moment! And I am happy to share as I am ok and I can laugh about it now!
On Monday night while schooling Flynn in our indoor he decided to throw in a massive vertical rodeo style buck that fired me straight off! It was quite impressive apparently and I left quite a dent in the arena floor!!! A visit to A&E and I have extensive soft tissue damage, damage to my coxis and concussion!!
Now I would like to say this isn't his normal behaviour, in all fairness he is never and has never been the most relaxed in our indoor it is small and dark. However we are in the winter season and we have to exercise as best we can.
After being in on our own for about 5 mins a further 5 people came in with their horses to school so it became a little bit chaotic to say the least. Not everyone has very good spacial awearness!!
It was freezing so they were all a 'little' fresh
We have no turnout at the moment either which isn't ideal but you manage the best you can.
Anyway silver lining.... while I have a horse that now feels he is so fit/well and confident to use that leg (although not demonstrate that to me in the way that he did!!) lol I am now out of action for however long it takes to fix! If I could lift my own leg I would be inclined to go and kick him on his to remind him it's supposed to be dodgy!!!
Fortunately my partner does a lot of groundwork with him and will loose school and hack him. I also have a couple of good friends who will happily carry on with his schooling and exercise (maybe when it's a little less busy at least until they can get out again!)
I am itching to get back on board but will have to be sensible.....not good at this doing nothing malarkey!
We have started very small jumping under instruction, and by small I mean he could happily trot or just canter over them, however he likes to jump and has sparked since we have let him have a go. He feels extremely sound and focused, I am as always very cautious of taking everything slowly no matter how he feels.
In 3 weeks he is going to be doing a novice dressage to music test at Aintree international Arena! I will not be riding him (prelim I can just about remember!) lol this will be his first outing and test since the injury. And my friend has kept it quite simple to give him a good chance so i don't expect him to score high. We are treating it as a day out, a bit of fun, let him reacclimatise to being out and to get some feedback from the judges to help us go forward. Will be interesting to compare to tests he did last year.
I will let you know how they get on! :)
Still can't emphasise enough how much I love this horse, attitude or not!! X

So sorry to hear about your accident. Hope you recover quickly, & good luck at the show. You have done a marvelous job w/Flynn, & I'm so glad you got that second opinion.

Short little video of him jumping. Now nearly 8 months post injury. Still working on his overall fitness and getting him working more from behind. This is the first time he has looked at any XC jumps since his accident. Very happy with his progress :)
