Stress on a Vaulting Horse? (lunging)
My vaulting team needs a new horse. We are using a pony but need a large horse. I have volunteered my horse since he has a TON of lift, is extremely calm, and is larger (16.1hh). He is getting over a muscle injury that pretty much ended us eventing but I cant bring myself to sell him. My instructor and I talked about it and thought letting him be a vaulting, drill team, and dressage horse from now on is the best idea. But today I have seen a lot of things online that vaulting is really bad for the horses and it hurts there back and legs. Is it true? Please help!
