    Splint - light work or complete rest?

    Thats reassuring! Finns is only small compared to some I have seen so I am hopeful it will also not be noticeable after a while x

    Splint - light work or complete rest?

    Thanks for input. Will likely rest for a further few days then continue work. He is only doing walking hacks mostly anyway so will reintroduce and build up again slowly whilst monitoring.

    Splint - light work or complete rest?

    I would worry about having a very fat horse which equally would probably not be beneficial! It’s a minefield!

    Splint - light work or complete rest?

    *Just to say I will be consulting vet but just interested in other peoples experiences and opinions* Gutted that Finn has thrown a relatively small splint, he had such clean legs 😫. But horses will be horses. He moved to a new field a few days ago so can only imagine he has walloped himself...

    Buying horses unseen

    Yes and have done. Would only do so if prepared to lose the money if it doesn’t work out, the height of horse isn’t vital and the seller is trustworthy. edited to add I wouldn’t buy a ridden horse unseen. Only unbroken/lightly backed.

    He’s a good lad. I really don’t know how to describe it, but he just feels like an ‘old soul’. Sounds silly probably, but I just feel like he’s one of those horses that has an almost deeper understanding.

    It’s Finn’s 4th birthday today. Can’t believe I bought him over a year ago unseen and what a lovely horse he is becoming! He celebrated in normal Finn style this morning with a lay in. My OH decided to join him today! So cute I had to share ❤️

    Having a fab time with Finn at the minute. He’s really starting to nail this hacking alone malarkey! Getting more bold every time we go out and exploring new routes without question and remaining chilled. Most pleased with how he is with the traffic, he is rock solid through our busy village...

    Success! First completely solo hack with no jogging whatsoever. We also tackled a lawn mower and big tractor and sprayer simultaneously with no dramas. I love my overgrown pony!

    Had our first proper canter together today. Bar a few strides in the school Finn hasn’t really cantered at all and me and trainer agreed that cantering straight lines out hacking at present will be best as Finn is just so big and unbalanced. Had my OH in the ground just in case but he was super...

    Finn has been back under saddle 4 weeks since his winter break. He went to his first show yesterday and only second ever outing and he behaved like an absolute pro! So proud!
