front leg support/injury prevention
I have a question regarding my 10 year old Welsh pony X TB. A little over a year ago, she went lame for the first time. It was very slight, in her front end, and only visible when she was being ridden. But it didnt go away after a week, so I had the vet look at her. To make a long story short, it took 3 vets and TONS of tests and in the end her diagnosis was "joint inflammation."
She is now sound, but every now and then she'll be off again. I want to be doing everything I can to prevent her from becoming lame.
I used to do polo wraps, but I heard so many controversial things about polos that I stopped, especially because I am not very skilled in wrapping and usually don't have someone around to help me.
I am thinking about buying some boots, but before I do, I wanted to get some information about my options. We do not jump and she has no problems with brushing or over-reaching. I want something that will provide support and protection to her fetlock joints. I was thinking either SMB Elites or Equilibrium's Stretch & Flex Training Wraps, but would love any advice.
Thanks for any suggestions or product recommendations!
