I'm not sure the extent of is injuries, so it's hard to say what his limitations are, therefore it's hard to say what he can do without getting hurt again. Can he run without you on him?? I play with a big ball with my horse. He likes to chase it and kick it around, but he usually runs when doing that. Again, I'm not sure what your guy is allowed to do and not do at this point. Maybe some more info on his limitations would give us some more ideas for ya.....:)
He's allowed to walk and trot..but, i'm not allowed to ride him.
The vet said start with maybe 10-15 minutes then add to it.
He's been allowed in the field for the last 4 months during the day and I have yet to see him actually do any trotting. During work outs he has to wear his Old Mac's G2 Multi-Purpose boots (thats all the time actually) and has to wear
Equilibrium Tri-Zone Allsports Boots also..
So he's allowed to walk and do some trotting and learn to use his body again..
As long as its all on the ground..
Here's the things I have that I can use
~whips (not that he needs it he listens to vocals)
~side reins/surcingle/drive lines/ drew reins
And I can get anything that could help him.
