The poor horse can't figure out what is going on! He gets to do some
great rides in the desert, and now he has to stand around in his stall
for a month. We are going to take my wife's horse to the experts at
Davis to get his stifle checked out, so we will bring this horse along
just as a precaution. The staff at Davis has the best equipment, and
like my vet says- they perform ultrasounds all day and are very good at
it. I like this horse a lot, and want him perfect.

Subject: [endurance] ligament damage

In November of last year I rode in a particularly rocky 25 miler. At the end
of the race my horse pulled up lame, it turned out that he had a problem with
the interior check ligament. I've stayed off him since (went through the ice
treatment & absorbine) but there is still a small amount
of swelling and appears to be a little heat. Took him to the vets today and
the vet told me that this may
not heal, but advised me that I might start him off slowly and see how he did.
He said that we might consider a "blister job".
Has anyone had experience with interior check ligament damage or a blister
treatment or have any advice regarding this?
