Rehabilitation programme after treatment
In-hand walking (ridden if preferred and horse is sensible) starting at 20 minutes per day for the first week. Add 5 minutes on to daily exercise every week:-
Week one. 20 minutes
Week two. 25 minutes
Week three. 30 minutes
Week four. 35 minutes
…………and so on.
Horses should be kept as quiet as possible and must not be put in a main field with other horses until fully recovered. Ideally, if a small paddock is possible, this should be away from sight of the other horses because if they gallop around, they may set recovery back substantially.
