I have a story of hope. This pony also had the typical bunny hopping in canter after an acute injury in the field that took a while to diagnose.

He was injected with steriods both sides, 6 months of rehab work (with the first 3 being inhand or hacking). This was him maybe 7 years afterwards having needed no further treatment.

He would do a very nice novice test with me, but this was his sharer riding him.

Canter with someone who is also not me around the same time as the dressage pic.

He has needed it redone once in the last year as a precaution as he now has one slightly atheritic hock too which was injected at the same time, but is now back to his normal happy self.

Best of luck to you, your daughter and your horse. The more i read the more i realise how lucky I might have been. This little horse never did jump very much though.

Thankyou. If he can hack at least we will be happy as my younger daughter will ride him. anything more than that would be amazing. I have already started a savings fund this past few weeks incase he doesn’t come anywhere near what we hope even for a short time. But we will see. Great to see a good outcome x

That’s amazing Thathairyone. How many days per week did you rehab him for and for how long?
