He is 23yr old arab x welsh D and stands at 15.1hh.
I have been told to slow him down now and at least semi-retire him. Do you guys agree? He has been a pony club eventer for most of his life (hates flat work but his face lights up when he sees any kind of fence) and is going strong apart from one thing..He is intermitantly lame in both fore legs-it has been put down to DJD (degenerative joint disese) a form of arthritus and he has to be on joint supplements. He can no longer jump the huge tracks he used to, obviously, but I don't want to take away his main pleasure in life for him to be yet another retired horse sat in the field (when he's turned away he drops weight and looks plain miserable)
However people keep telling me its not fair on him anymore? Let me know what you think from these pics.
