Now thatís completely different from what Iíve learned and read, along with my own personal experiences. In college we had a WB that had stringhalt and heíd warm up out of it some, but was very limited in colder weather as to how much he could do (if anything at all) under saddle. Iíve also read that itís usually from trauma or nerve damage and is not genetic or predisposed to any breed or type. It can be caused by overjumping when young or out of condition, and it can sometimes get better if caught early, but usually is permanent and can worsen with age and cold weather. All this is similar to what I was able to find on thehorse.com.
So is it me? Or should a horse with stringhalt not be jumped, let alone used for jumpers??? I just wanted to find out if Iím out of my mind or if you guys had any other info to share on stringhalt and jumpers. Thanks!!!
