My horse is coming back into work she has been out of work for 4 months she is coming back into work in 2 weeks are there any exercises I could do with her?
Start out slowly, she would have lot alot of muscle tone meaning she can be very prone to injury. Start at a hack at a walk for maybe one week and at the end of that week you could add some trot. Then progress to more trot etc. Take it slowly and be in tune with how she feels.
Any tips on what to expect when starting a working student position in a professional eventing yard? ☺️
Expect to be worked hard. It is a challenging position but so rewarding and you will learn alot! Tips are to make sure you use your initiative, don't wait to be told what to do, muck out yards, clean troughs, clean gear. The more you put in to the position, the more you will get out of it x
So unfortunately I broke my wrist pretty badly & will be operated next week (I will get metal pins). Does anyone have any experience with this? How long will I not be able to ride?
I broke both my arms at one point due to falling off and you just need to listen to your doctor. After surgery I had a cast for 6 weeks and then physio for a month after to strengthen my arm again. Please listen to your doctor as they know best x
So my horse just got his shoes off and he's had them on all spring and summer. His feet are really sensitive now and whenever I ride him he gets a bit of a limp. What can I do?
If you are wanting him to be barefoot, there is nothing you can do for a 'quick fix'. I would suggest feeding a supplement such as biotin to assist him in the long run however time is needed to adjust. Regarding the show, ultimately he is your horse and you decide what you do with him so if you don't think he ready then do not go. You want your horse to be happy, healthy and comfortable <3
