Ok I know the title sounds like it should be in a differant category but it is a training question.
Ok so to start out, I am leasing a bay TB mare with the potentially of buying her. She was a grand prix jumper but then she pulled up lame and her rider made her finish the jumping season. (6 foot jumps to be exact.) Afterward her family and her refused to pay for her medicine to bring her back.
So my trainer got her. It turns out all she had was swelling issues and once she got the medicine she went right back to being sound.
So now we are rehabbing her to get her back into jumping. The vet said she probably shouldn't jump 6ft again. (no duh) but she could easily jump 3'6"-4'. We are rehabbing her and it is taking quite some time. Should we start over with her jumping training and just act like she was never a grand prix jumper of should we work her (when its time) like she knows what she's doing?
Thanks I really need advice on this.
