[RC] Future prospects for bowed tendon/pulled suspensory? - Stagg_Newman


The second horse we ever had was a big (16h2, 1275 pound) thoroughbred from
the race track that came with a big bow on the left front.
He was slated to go to the auction
when we bought him $500.  We named him Russian Roulette because he was
a gamble (sounded better than Hurrying Henry, his real name).  My wife
used Rou for several years for jumping and low level eventing and then he
on do competitive trail riding with both of us.  One year I believe before
NY 3-Day 100 the vets unofficially voted him least likely horse to complete
But he did and well.  Got best thoroughbred at NY 100 one year.  Did
3-Day 100s as well as shorter rides.  Was never pulled in a ride.

Bow never did both him.  So our experience was good.

What I would advise is getting an opinion from a good endurance vet,
particularly if there is one close by who can examine the horse.
