    Hoping this is the right section to post this.. Hi all! I am in the market for buying a OTTB as my next mid-upper level jumper and to start me in eventing. I found a horse in which I am having a complete PPE done on this week. She is a 7 yr old mare, raced 30 times and retired. Had downtime...

    Hi, I recently moved my horse to a new place where the surface in the arena is a little deeper than the one that was at my previous barn. I am a bit (well a little more than a bit) concerned about my horse riding in this "deeper surface" because he had an injury a few years ago where his...

    Hi everyone, A few days ago I noticed a little lump on my mare's front right leg, the leg that has predisposed problems. At first I was very concerned. The first day it was very hot, but she showed no lameness so I used a "wait and see" approach, knowing it wasn't one of the bigger...

    My thoroughbred is pretty clumsy and slips and falls occasionally. Last time she fell, she pulled a tendon or ligament, and her upper canon bone swelled. What type of boots or wraps would be best to help protect her tendons and ligaments in her canon bone? Thinking polo wraps, dressage boots, or...

    Hi all, I have just found out a couple of days ago that my 6 year old show-jumper has a severe rupture of his deep digital flexor tendon which has also ruptured into his tendon sheath. He's incredibly lame on it (10/10) and has been at Liphook Hospital having numerous scans as vets cannot...

    I looked at a 6 yr old OTTB that had a minor tendon tear in her left front. It healed, has been ultrasounded, and she is cleared for everything but high eventing. I want her for a barrel horse. Would you guys risk buying her?

    So at the beginning of the week I rode my horse and she appeared sound, until I asked for a trot, where she was head bobbing pretty badly. I got off and led her home. Feeling her left front, I realized that her tendon sheath was swollen, with quiet a bit of heat in the leg. I rang the vet and...

    I have a 16.3hh Gelding who sustained a 40% tear in his front left tendon whilst racing on the track. I took him back home where we secured the tendon back with silicon and gave him a 8 months to recuperate. The injury healed beautifully and almost four years later (Today) he hasn't had one...

    Horse arrived home from a traveling 24+ hours home from a show in good spirits. I noticed that his left front looks quite weird, but it is not hot or sensitive. It looks to me to be the lateral digital extensor, but I'm not sure. He trots sound, but it looks significantly different and...

    I recently acquired a lame horse. Don't ask why! 50% stupidity & 50% blind faith that I can find a cure. She's a 12yr Arab mare, her past history is virtually unknown. She's lame in her off-fore, but no heat, no swelling, no bony lumps. The only obvious abnormality is a tough, fibrous ridge...

    So, my horse has had a splint for about a week, and he was only lame on it at the trot, but I decided to give him a month off and let it heal. I started icing it and wrapping at night. Two days ago, he decided he didn't want to go any further on the trail (handwalking) and turned around and...
