Ok for all of you who were focused on eating me out because I was riding my "lame" horse we took him to a vet had nerve blocks, ultra sounds and xrays done in all of his legs, guess what it was MUSCLE SORENESS so there I wouldn't have ridden my horse if I thought it was serious. I know him better than that. Two point I believe Matthew is when there is two points of contact on the saddle just because I am not laying on my horses neck which would inhibit what little buscule he has over this small jump does not mean im not in two point. I know he should be rounder in his topline believe me we have been working on it!! When I got him his nickname was giraffe he jumped so inverted, he's the only horse I know who jumps 2 feet over everything so he doesnt have to use his back and tuck his legs. But whatever floats his boat its not like were doing hunters, we just need to get over the jumps and do it fast which I must say he's excellent at. So anyways I thought I would let the concerned parties know about how my baby boy is doing. Vets orders were bute and a week of stall rest/ hand walking plus some drug they gave me that flushes toxins, to get rid of the long term build up of lactic acid. We flexed and jogged him saterday he looks wonderful all his suspension and flexion in his joints are back. So i'll update you all next week.!

No one here was trying to jump you - we each had concern for your horse.
A large amount of lactic acid in the muscles is usually do to too heavy of work with improper cooling, rest and feeding. Be careful. Is your horse prone to tying up? Is that what happened?

Thats fine than. I am just wondering for your horse. You and your horse have alot of potential in Hunter Trails.
Trust me,

Nope he has never tied up. No idea what it was from he is in a program designed for him by a vet, he gets a blood panel, tpr and flexed by the barn vet every 2 weeks and we adjust the program accordingingly. He also has a nutritionist so I don't think the lactic acid was from any of those things specially since he wasn't any where near his peak in these past few weeks because we've been working him down so he could have june as a light month. We were working on a 7 day week, 1 gallop, 1 jump, 3 dressage, 2 hacks and 30 minute cool out walks every day that's never changed, I'm an eventer I take WAY to good care of my horse as do most eventers. His life is pretty much micro managed and since I see him all day every day because I'm a working student I know exactly whats happening and when changes are made I do it. Perks of being a working student you learn how to manage horses. I'm in charge of the daily care of 16 horses and believe me I could spout off the tpr, feed, worming, shoeing, immunization and work schedule of each horse right now. Sorry for ranting but being a pony clubber and barn manager I take offense when people hint at me being careless with my horses.

I don't think any of them were carless I just think they were worried about you and ur horse. As there are some unknowlagable people on this site as well as knowledgable so they just wanted to make sure all was ok and you knew what you were doing

Gidget was right were not bagging you out at all just concerning! You go girl and kick some bum (not allowed to swear). You and your horse have IT!

Please do not put worlds in my mouth. I never said you were careless.

However, if the horse is under a microscope and you say that he is given amazing care, why is he going to have the next month off due to lameness?
I am concerned but also disagree with several things you are doing. I think you're setting your horse up for future issues. I'm especially concerned about lactic build up. If he under goes a huge transition like you say - from major work to no work, I see problems arising in the future.

I defintally don't agree- look she asked to critique her jumping for god sake not to comment on other issues like lammnes. Kristy she knows her horse better than you-i bet. It is her decision not yours. Fair enough you can express your opion-but don't make her decision for her!! I am sure futolympeventer327 knows about horses! Well see by her jumping..... Kristy you can be too opionated, but I guess that is good in some ways. But not when you make people upset, and make them think that they arn't looking after their horse propally.

Like I said, it's out of concern - something you once agreed with yourself. I'm not hounding her and told her it was my opinion. If she didn't want opinions, she wouldn't ask or post in critique. This is a public message board and people can only voice their opinions, despite if others agree with them. The OP is actually the one who brought up the lameness issue again -therefore I commented. Like I said, it's the purpose of this message board. If I hear something I disagree with, I personally try to keep an open mind. I find that rather then stubbing up, being immature and getting defensive - being open minded will allow me to learn different things and become more wise in my experience with horses.
