Recovery of a Kissing spines patent

Good day to you all

I am unsure of how many people on this forum have had previous experiance of Kissing spines but we have just had a lovely little dear admitted to us for rehabilitation. Unfortunatly the owner is not financially stable enough to afford an operation for the horse BUT fortunatly we have ascertained thru numeros xrays that it is possible to help the horse without an operation as the problem was spotted early.

Now being a typical wonder that is a TB he is losing his topline as he is in light work but he is on gentle lunge / longline work. We have to be careful what we do with him but have a programme planned for his recoery.

He has been with us for a week and has been lungeing for 10 mins on a pessoa in walk and it seems to be helping build his back up again. Next week we shall longline him over raised poles to develop awareness of leg placement.

If anyone else has a horse with KS feel free to message on this post with how you are dealing with it and maybe we can all help oneanother out with suggestions.

I've never had an instances with Kissing Spines, but I just read about it, that sounds like a terrible thing for a horse to go through and I feel so sorry for you and your new horse.

I hope everything goes well, keep us posted. <3
