My Morgan/Welsh mare fell two years ago and after healing she went down on me twice. I retired her to be a pasture pet. Six months ago she was started on ligament/tendon supplements plus a senior supplement from Smartpak. She is now back in work with lower level Pony Club kids and is doing well. She is 20 years old. There is hope with a younger horse that the healng will be more complete. When the vet gives the go ahead let your horse have as much time out as possible. Out on pasture with older, quieter horses will keep the horse moving without too much excitement. Hope this helps!
