“Back riding after 6 weeks, I am ecstatic, he is feeling great!”
I turned Tatta out for about 4 months, took his shoes off, he was fine. When I started bringing him back into work he was lame.I got him shod, still lame. Had the chiropractor out, still lame. Then we went to the vet for x-rays which showed early stages of navicular.
Vet suggested cortisone injections and corrective shoeing.
One injection once a week for 4 weeks and then once a month after that. He had a total of 5. They hardly helped.
Then I got Rose-Hip Vital Equine after seeing before and after videos on Facebook. At the 3 week mark in the video I was still half way through my first 1.5kg tub.
He now has wedges on and rubber wedges in between the hoof and the shoe (he always had wedges on in the past).
I was ready for his early retirement; he was starting to look and feel like a garden ornament. Back riding after 6 weeks, I am ecstatic, he is feeling great.
