To ride dressage is to dance with your horse, equal partners in the delicate and sometimes difficult work of creating harmony and beauty.

Sleeping it off

Dopey pony:
Rick treated Lance's strained suspensory with extracorporeal shockwave therapy today, followed by PRP (platelet-rich plasma, using the horse's own plasma). Lance then had to sleep off the standing anesthesia (he wasn't going to tolerate a needle poking in his sore suspensory) before he could go back to his mid-day hay snack.

Poor guy, the road to recovery isn't always a walk in the park is it. But hip hip hay ray that he is up to full rations!

What can you do to help Lance avoid getting injured? You mentioned that you thought the sand in your right wasn't very good footing for him. Is there any way to change it up so that he isn't injured so much/often?
