I've only been able to walk my horse for over 3 weeks now, because she has splints.
She has been on no turnout also because she's not really allowed to do anything but walk. I've been walking her under saddle, the vet said that was okay, but nothing more.
Next week the vet said I can resume riding, the ligament swelling should have subsided by then with everything we've been doing for it. But since she's effectively been off for almost a month, I obviously can't just jump back on her and expect to canter through a jump course!
SO...what are others' suggestions for getting back into training after a month off? I'm thinking lots of slow trotting to start off with, but I'm wondering how winded she'll be/how long the trot sessions should last between walk breaks? I don't want to end up re-injuring the ligament.
