So now you know. From all the research you have done you know that you will have to watch her diet and maybe curtail her jumping. Since she has never shown any signs she may never show any. I pray this is the case. I think being aware is all important, knowing what the signs of an attack are and what to do when one is coming on, even if she never has one. My heart goes out to you

Thank you Vidaloco. I am stopping her jumping career as for now permantely. I rather just have her as my companion, letting her know i'm there for here no matter what. I will ride her, but keep them short and make sure I have long warm-ups and long cool-downs. I'm going to inform my stable and also print out a sheet to put on her stall door. Incase when I'm not there they know what to look for and what to do in that case.

I have never heard of hypp? What is it exactually ...and what are the symptoms

Shani, I never knew what HyPP was until I was reading some posts on this forum. To date, HyPP has only infected horses decendants of Impressive (AQHA). It is a dominate trait, so if you horse has Impressive in his bloodlines, get him tested. My mind's kind of all over the place, but a good website is www.bringinglighttohypp.org

I'm so sorry, Appy! :(

From what read though she may have that HYPP but never show a sign, so I hope that'll be a case!

That's what I'm hoping for. My boyfriend read yesterday that usually if they don't show any symptoms by age 4, theres a good chance they wont. But you just never know. We also made up a little emergency card incase she does go into an attack when we're not there. It tells them exactly what to do, and what the vet should do when she comes out.

Why are you stopping her career? Has she had any symptoms yet? If not then keep riding her. I have a big gelding that is N/H and he is trained in Western Pleasure and I have been showing him this summer in Halter classes. I am going to start back riding him in a few weeks. He is 4 years old and 16.2 . He is not on any meds and has never had any symptoms. I keep Karo syrup and banimine on hand only because I have a filly that is H/H. She has only had 1 episode when I took her off her meds to soon after bringing her home, whne I bought her. I gave her a syringe full of Karo syrup and she was fine. I hope this doesn't stop you from riding her that would be a waste.

I kind of over reacted Zipster. I was so upset that she had it, I didn't want to do anything to upset her. But after talking to quite a few people and reading so much more on HyPP, i'm going to keep jumping her. I have been lunging her like every day and doing a lot of groundwork with her, and then taking what we learned on the ground into the saddle. My boyfriend and I are going to get Karo syrup and have it handy just in case anything happens. I know I definitely over reacted but I just didn't expect it.

That's ok , some over react with HYPP. Just try to keep Karo syrup and banimine(sp) you have to get it from the vet. I always keep it where ever I go. I keep one in the barn and in my trailer.Good luck I hope you do well with her.
