    I had a meniscectomy a few years ago and was back to riding (with surgeon and PT permission) 2 weeks post-op. The surgeon I saw specializes in sports medicine, though, so that may be why I was back...

    And good luck getting a doctor to do that.

    Why don't people think this way about pregnancy, too?

    If horses jumped as well with an auto release as they do with a crest release, you'd see more people doing it. ;)

    I would not put any horse on any hormonal treatment unless the horse had demonstrated a need for it. Yours hasn't. Putting her on that just so you can ride on a drill team is, as you said, selfish....
