So, my horse has had off for the past 10 months due to a shoulder injury which then turned into a shoulder surgery.
His core training is in western pleasure, but before I plan on getting into the saddle I want to condition him a bit.
Thing is, I have to take it easy on my shoulder still (Not sure if this will help anything, but the injuries I acquired were a torn labral ligament, torn rotator cuff, chipped bone, tendonitis, burisits, and an impingement).
My plan of action is to start him on a light lunge plan of every 3-6 days W/T for now. On days between lunge days I stretch him and work on ground manners. I would hopefully like to be back in saddle within the next month, but I too, have to recondition myself.
He's been pissy about lunging, he's always hated it, but it's the only way I can do it for right now. Any tips/hints? I was thinking about maybe starting him on some supplements, any suggestions?
