  1. Horse Health
    It was raining and really cold the other day so for the first time this year I decided to leave the horses in their stalls for the day. They get fed three times a day, and when I was there in the morning. All was well. As was it at 4...... However when I went down around 7 I noticed that Suzie...

    I just need somewhere to vent because everything has just compiled into one big mess and it seems that the people who are around me for this (which don't get me wrong, I'm entirely grateful to) are just desensitized to it, if that makes any sense at all. I went and saw my knee surgeon about my...

    Okay so I recently fractured my patella lifting hay :oops:. Thankfully the patella itself did not break, but the cartilage and bone underneath it was shaved off and went into my calf muscle. I had surgery and have my exercises to do before I get into physical therapy but I need a bit of help...

    So I need the advice of all the lovely people out there! I recently fractured my knee and had to have surgery to repair it. The surgeon does not ride but said it's a good 50/50 chance I'll be able to ride in a year. But he won't know until I try if I can continue to ride. I ride western and...

    I run high school track and cross country in addition to riding and my coach has been bugging me to quit riding (no way that is happening) because he says it messes up my knees. Does anyone have any experience with the affects of riding on running or know what I can say to get him to leave me alone?

    I don't know if this is in the right place but I need some comforting/guidance. I recently (as in two days ago) fractured my knee while moving hay. I've not gone in for an MRI yet (have an appointment tomorrow) but I've basically been told that it looks like my PCL is wrong. I'm hoping that I'm...
  7. Horse Conformation Critique
    He's 11 years old, and i'm mainly looking at his knees where he appears to be tied in? I rode him before I bought him and he is a stunning mover. He worked on a ranch for cattle work and i'm wanting to do low level barrel racing with him. He is actually slightly underweight and definitely not...

    Here's a very nice off the track Throughbred eventer, but seems to not be perfectly straight in the knee when standing. What exactly is this and how does it affect him? Thanks!

    I recently got diagnosed with knee burstitis in my left knee, and only recently have a ridden again. Whilst out on my horse today I noticed that my saddle, while being a good fit for my narrow, high withered tb x, isn't a good fit for me :( It's a jumping saddle, very forward cut, and while...

    What is everyone's experience with battling knee/ankle pain using stirrup swivels? I get intense knee pain after just a short ride and really hope these will help! What brand do you use? Or do you have any other solutions for pain?

    Are there any people out there who have an ACL injury and still riding? In August 2010, a horse reared over backwards on me and that resulted in me COMPLETELY tearing my ACL in my right knee. As of right now, my leg is quite stable, i dont have many problems with it (like i can run 3 miles...

    Hi everyone! :) I usually ride in an english saddle, but even after fifteen or so minutes of riding my right knee starts to get really stiff and sore. After riding for awhile, when I get off I can't even walk for ten minutes because the pain is so awful (and I'm only 18!) I just have to stand...

    Was wondering if anyone had any luck with an ointment of any kind on what looks to be a callus. We just bought the mare and she said she had fallen in the rocks on that knee but it looks callused. Got any suggestions on what we could put on it?
