Cushing and riding
My horse has been on pergolide since last summer...he was holding up his back leg before pills and fell down...callapsed when riding him..walking....he is no longer holding up his leg and canters ...trots nicely but hv tried a couple times to ride him and he has dipped in the back a few times....do u think he will ever be ridden or is he just a companion horse now...he is 25...I've had him since he was 3....he has been to vet and chiropractor....he is stiff in the back....vet said he has Cushing and arthritis
Welcome. Our PPID/Cushing's and IR horses can do a lot more than we think if approached slowly with the right support. His arthritis may be a factor, depending on where it is and how severe.
So we can give you the full DDT+E approach for specific recommendations, can you tell us more? The best way to do that is through filling out a CasehHisotry. You need to join our Case History filing cabinet site, ECHisotry8, just like you did here, then fill out the form and upload to a folder. You can join and find instructions here: ECHistory8
