stifle injury- Torn Meniscus
My horse was just diagnosed yesterday with a torn meniscus. The vet said that he is still ridable as a pleasure horse, no dressage, limit circles, limit hills. He said he can still do some jumping and that he can be maintained with medications (hycoat, glucosamine, etc...) and some bute when needed. He will be on partial turnout for a while (~4 hrs a day). He said I can go ahead and start light riding this weekend. I was feeling very positive when leaving the vet yesterday but today I started doing some research and found some articles that were not so postive. I have no real asperations of competing anymore and know that if I decide I want to do anything heavy, I will need to get another horse. Does anyone here have any experience with this type of stifle injury?
