I know of a horse that has a middle tear in her stifle. The horse who has the tear is a 4 year old Hanoverian/TB. Do you guys know if there is anyway to help heal the tear, and what are the effects of the torn stifle?
It depends, do you know how bad the tear is? If not, it's best to bring a vet in for this situation. If you end up getting lucky and on the mending end of things, I know that backing up exercises are pretty good for working a stifle, so that could be a therapy thing that you do. good luck!
Drifter had a small tear in what I believe was referred to as his lateral meniscus. 6 months rest off work. 2 months stall rest, 4 months small paddock rest. He is sound now for riding but it did limit his abilities and what we are now able to do. I also live in fear of coming out one day and noticing something not quite right with that stifle again. Get a vet out ASAP. NOT something to mess around with Posted via Mobile Device
