Suspensory Ligament Problems ?
Hi everyone! I was wondering if anyone can shed some light on this type of injury ! I was recently contacted to take an off the track 3 year old Standardbred filly who had a suspensory problem in her right hind leg. Now, I don't know much about this type of injury, so I figured someone here might be able to help! The vet altrasounded her leg and said she is about 98 -100% sound. I am wondering if, even though she is sound now, will she be able to hold up being ridden ? Even though this horse is being given to me I just want to be sure I will still have s sound horse 6+ years down the road! Any input would be great! Thanks!
