Suspensory & Jumping
So about a year and a half ago, my horse strained his suspensory to his hind leg. We had purchased him 2 months before this happened (suspicious since the lady blew us off!) and he was going to be my 3 foot jumper horse. Well we gave him 2 months stall rest, and then slowly brought him back into work in mid september. It was just walking up and down the aisle, then to lunging, then under saddle. It was slow but he's recovered and completely sound. He has never had heat or been sore. I have tried selling him, (currently add posted in class section) but no one wants to buy him! Saddest thing too, cause he is the greatest, sweetest horse I've ever met. I would like a non jumping home to buy him, so that I don't ever cause something like that to even think of happening again. But since no one has bought him, I am tempted to start jumping. I have heard of many stories where eventers have completely torn their suspensory and come back fine. Anyone with experience, or suggestions?
