Hi, new to this forum malarkey. Need some advice (no nasty comments please) My mare (ISH) has been out of work for a good 15 months whilst I was pregnant and during my maternity leave. I have started bringing her back into work the last couple of weeks but not started lunging or anything yet, just a walk out small hacks (around 20 min walking only). Long story short, she is a little on the chubby side and is extremely unfit. My friend asked if she could ride her last weekend and I said ‘ok take it easy though as she’s unfit still’ This morning found her really lame, she can’t even trot and it’s more her hind legs. They’re not warm and don’t look swollen.. could this be because they’ve done too much with her on the hack due to her being unfit? I’m hoping that’s all it is and I’ve put her on box rest and will assess again in two days time wont be letting people ride her without my supervision again! Any advice welcome please.
