The snow has meant I have had to cancel all appointments this weekend and early in the week. It is just not safe for me to be trotting horses up when the ground is icy.
Many horses cope fine being turned out on the snow and ice however there are those which may find it difficult. It is important to keep a close eye on your horse or pony to see how they are coping. Deep snow will put a lot of additional strain on the hamstrings and these may become sore. Whereas slipping over on the ice or snow can easily cause a pelvic misalignment.
If you think your horse may be struggling or has had a fall please dont hesitate to give me a call for advice or to book an appointment.
