    yes, that's right, there was a really long thread about this with a bunch of folks chiming in; that would give you more input, jody!

    I'll see if I can find it too.

    fordtraktor, my "fancy lameness vet" was Kent Allen, and we had exactly that discussion. I do not think having the surgery made the rehab go any faster - it was very traditional in that respect. He...

    Not sure how new is new, but when my big horse came up a bit funky behind we whipped him off to the fancy lameness vet, who pronounced it hind suspensories. He went straight to Leesburg - surgeon...

    Well, that's just not right. It's YOUR horse (or friend's horse). Of course it's your call to make. As so many people have said, possibly the pro ride is why the horse goes well for the owner. But...

    Another thing to try is the "Wonder bit" -- I used this on my big horse who would sometimes bear down and blow through my aids. He was very unhappy about anything non-snaffle in his mouth and was...

    I agree with those who say evaluate the injury. Suspensory injuries can be prone to reoccurring but it depends on how serious this one was and how well it has healed. I'd certainly ask for any...

    So, yes, there are drafts and draft crosses that struggle with the canter work.
    It's possible this is one. But I'm going to tell you that I think you just have a young horse.

    Another vote for saddle fit. Presumably for a suspensory he was on total stall rest. That can change their top line completely. Something to rule out at least.

    I also agree that, at least in the US, "navicular" is used to describe a range of conditions causing heel pain. It is true that an MRI is the best way to identify which specific problem you are...

    You might also want to edit the title of your post with NOVA to get more helpful views. Waredaca, where I board, is about 20 mins from 270 but I can't think it would be the most convenient barn for...

    She's been lame for several weeks? You need to have the vet out sooner rather than later. An abscess would most likely have resolved (or gotten very obvious), and if it was arthritis you are right,...

    Thread resurrected from several years ago. Someday, the advice for DIY riders won't include the admonishment to "stick it" before your lesson.

    DMK's questions (and the possible answers) are spot on. You have to walk through the options systematically.

    What level did he event at? If it was anything recognized, I really don't think he needs "packaging and momentum" to jump a 2 foot fence without charging and bucking. This sounds much, much more...
