A lady i know was lucky enough to find a therapudic stable in the city who was willing to take her gelding on (he had severe navicular at age 10).
My other friend's parents also have a gelding with navicular. He hasnt been ridden in about 3 years now but i know he'll stay with them until he dies, which may be awhile seeing as how he's only 14 or so & in good health otherwise.
They're lucky enough to have plenty of land, though & her dad makes their own hay & does his horses feet so expenses for them are very little.

Placing them in a therapeutic riding center is nearly impossible I would think. I know the ones around here will not take them. Here is a list of requirements from a local place
Physical requirements of a horse/pony being offered on a PERMANENT basis:

  • AGE: The horse/pony must be no younger than 5 years old and no older than 15 years.
  • SOUNDNESS: The horse/pony must be sound and free of any condition that may lead to further care as determined by our veterinarian. For example: navicular, laminitis, rotation.
  • HEALTH: The horse/pony must be free of any health problems as determined by our veterinarian. For example: heaves, chronic colic.
  • GENERAL: The horse/pony must pass a veterinarian’s examination.

Those horses sure are lucky to have found a place. :) Its a lot of money going out especially when people have horses just for business and a means of making money.

I agree with everyone. I LUCKILY found a place for the blind Arabian mare but she is completely sound. I can't even get $200 for this perfectly sound 2 year old!

100% Anti-Slaughter and PROUD of it!
