Suspensory Injuries- Do they come back?
I've been taking a look at a few horses and inquired in them. Last week, I talked to one of the owners who said her horse had a suspensory injury and was out of work for about a year. He had been doing training level eventing, and has gotten back into work for about a month or two now. Apparently, they are planning on bringing him back into jumping very soon and after this year they think he will be able to go back to training level and move along again. I heard that after a horse gets this injury, it is likely that it can come back if the same amount of work is being done. So my question is, what would happen if I were to event this horse at beginner novice this year and then work him back up to his previous level before he got the injury? Should I stay away from this horse?
