I got Packenham (Paddy for short) - an ex point-to-pointer in May of 2012, after having a break from riding of about 20 years. There have been some ups and downs (mostly downs) over the past 18 months & this is our journey together from Paddy being a racehorse to hopefully eventually a riding horse!

Paddy lame :(

Had a lesson after our dressage outing and Paddy went really well....fast forward 2 weeks and Paddy is lame intermittently on his right fore. Don't know whether he's bruised his foot or tweaked something, but there's no heat or swelling and no raised digital pulse.

For the moment I am going to give him a week off and then if he's still lame, get the vet out.

It's such a pity because as soon as we start going out and doing exciting things, something goes wrong!!
