I have a 9yo Belgian/Quarter mare who has some bone spurs around her pastern joint(beginning high-ringbone) She also has a thinning of her navicular bursa, but the Vet says that that's not as big of a problem. My question is about how much is Arthrodesis surgery? And what is the cost/benefit ratio. She isn't an eventer or anything, I just want to pleasure ride her without her being in pain afterward. She's pretty spunky and tends to try and keepp the geldings she shares her pasture with in-line.:lol: But after she bucks at one of them she tends to limp for a while, same with if she trots around the round pen for a while during ground work.
