Slowly Getting back into work.

So Chance is a bit off still but its hardly noticeable, so I thought it would be okay to start getting her chubby tush back into work. The vet is coming out tuesday to give her another look over to see where she's at.

What do you do in order to get your horses back into work???

I did a bit of lunging today and she was having fun getting in my space :P Which I just put that down as something we need a little reminder of. But she does start to get on adrenaline and I don't need to zooming around and mess anything up so I shut her down and did some side passing. Idk what would you do?

What exactly was the injury? If she's visibly ouchy I'd give her some more time off.

Agreed, if she is still ouchy but it's hardly noticeable, just wait until she's not ouchy at all...shouldn't be too much longer if she is improving. You can do more harm by working her too soon, there is no reason not to wait a little longer.

I was thinking that the other day. The vet is coming out again tomorrow to check her over and see how minor or sever it is. She's been lame a good 2-3 weeks since the vet came last sooo yikes.

With your/her history, even if she's "a little ouchy" you should still let her fully recover. As we've learned in the past, she's a testy mare that can blow up for no reason, and horses will absolutely flip out if you work them just a little too much when they are in pain.
