Do you know this situation? You had just registered for a competition when you came to the stable and found your horse with a thick and warm leg. After a visit to the vet, the problem was clear: a tendon injury. Months of rest, walking and cooling ahead and the question whether he can ever return to his old level.
If it can now recover faster, and better, so that you can start again quickly. And if you can do more than just rest and walking.
A tendon injury can be acute due to strain of the tendon during training or in the meadow. But chronic overloading due to hard ground or heavy training can also lead to a tendon injury.
In the beginning of the injury you sometimes see a swelling and the horse is lame. These external characteristics often disappear relatively quickly, but the horse has not recovered from the tendon injury yet. Going back to work too early makes the injury more serious. Long periods of calm, cool and moderate exercise is the most prescribed treatment.
