I have a 12 yr old mare who about 2 and 1/2 yrs ago tore her leg up pretty bad. It was her back leg in her hock, the bones were visible and you could reach your hand inside and feel everything as you clean it out. She has healed up really nicely, even the vet is surprised that her scare isnt very big. However below the hock, and all the way down toward her pastern it has a lot of scare tissure and it is hard, and she is sensitive when you brush her there. In the field she doesnt seem to be bothered by it, she can do everything she used to do, riding everything seems fine as well, however she has only been ridin very lightly, nothing more than a trot. She is a really nice horse and I know she would make an excellent barrel horse, but I just dont know if I should try because of the old injury.

I don't see the harm in giving her a chance at it. I would give her a couple of weeks worth of good riding and evaluate her after each ride as long as she stays sound I'd go for it.

I agree with Jenni. If she is sound right now and it's been awhile since her injury I would start riding her daily and see how she does. I have a mare that twisted her knee and her leg almost looks deformed but she is completely sound and can be ridden. I do notice she will get sore if I go on a super long trail ride but otherwise is fine. I say give it a try :-)

we have a mare who is 28 now that tore her leg so bad at 3 on a tellephone guide wire that the vet was ready to put her down she allmost tore the hold leg off. Her scar is very hard and looks worse with age and shes stiff now but as long as you keep watching for stiffness and lipming and correct for it now. With vitamins and maybe a light dose of joint meds with your workouts you probably with not have a problem.
This old mare ran high point in state at 25 years old. Take it easy with her and go at her pace.YOu sound like your smart enuff to know how far to push her.

if you are wanting to help with hare growth and scar reduction even at this late of a date try corona cream for a about a week to soffen it up and then blue-kote ( its really purple)for about 2 weeks. I have seen it do wonders and hair growth and scar reduction even on older wounds. cost you all of $15 and you will have enuff for months to use on thouse little knicks

If you would like some help with joint meds just let me know my stud has joint issues and ive dont the roudn iwth that. Ive got cheap, easy, and effective--so let me know.
