Re: Ive been diagnosed with navicular!!

From: hopeful idxtb owner
Category: Horse Health


my 9yr old idxtb was diagnosed with navicular syndrome in october . i had been eventing him and doing aff. dressage so you can imagine my shock! he s being treated with wedge pads & bar shoes & isoxuprine. he is improving slowly - his length of stride is better & the vet is pleased with his progress. the vet says i can jump him - he is no worse afterwards - but im not sure if its fair to ask my horse to do eventing again. my horse has never been lame as such just short striding.i think you just have to wait & see how much your horse improves with treatment before you can decide what you & your horse can do.good luck!
