No I haven't hear of that, but I had tens therapy on myself and it did a world of good. It's actually kinda funny because I was just talking to the hubby about why this wasn't a common therapy for horses.
I definatly agree that most race horses are started and galloped WAY to early. Leading to alot of issues down the road. But just the same as other disciplines. I have a reining futurity horse that wasn't started until after she turned two, people can't believe that I would waste my money on such a "late start." Most reiners/cutters/pleasure riders (really any western competetive rider) starts their horses at a year and half old. Two is plenty early enough, too early still. ( I think futurities should be held off until a horse is 4 so you can let them mature one more year before riding them)
How come your girl needs surgery? A result of galloping or something else?
It's funny how horses understand when we need a cuddle. When I'm having one of those days when all I feel like doing is crying I go out and get some cuddles from my best friends. They are amazing creatures and I really couldn't leave without them.
