My horse's front right leg is a bit sore. We called the vet, he said to put some liniment on it, wrap it in a standing bandage, and to ride him (walk/trot ONLY) outside (with the bandage on), either on a trail ride or in one of the outside arenas.
**The standing bandage I'll be using isn't like those huge pillow ones...he'll still have some freedom of motion.
(The reason for the soreness is because we had been jumping on a softer surface, which made him stretch a little bit.)
I will be at the barn today, but not tomorrow, and not likely until Saturday or Sunday.
Is it okay to, when I get there, put the bandage on, do everything, and take it off right before I leave?
I don't want to leave it on all week, mostly because the liniment I'm using is the Absorbine Gel, not the liquid. Also, I don't want to make him stiff or anything.
There probably won't be anybody around to take it off for me.
What should I do?
Riders aren't 16 and pregnant. Riders are 16 and arthritic.
