I have a 16 year old gelding with ringbone in his right front and arthritis in both hind legs however with enough turn out that doesn’t bother him. He got diagnosed in 2011 and I was told by a well known OH vet he would be fine to keep working at the level we were (working up to Beginner Novice) and just watch him. We got more x-rays taken summer of 2013 to look at progression and talk shoeing. He was very sound all summer and fall, but as soon as the weather turned cold he has be lame in the right front. 9/10 he works out of it after awhile.
We currently have him on acti-Flex. What to you guys have your horses on to keep them comfortable? Also has anyone tried the Back on Track ceramic boots?
I am just looking for suggestions to help keep him sound.
