So I threw myself in the deep end and got a 8 yr OTTB , who raced till he was 7. He has this indent on his right hip , which we have identified as torn muscle . He had it when I got him and he went for a hoon that day and pulled up very sore the next day . Now I think the combination of not been worked much and been locked up in a small area , is half the reason, when he smacko, he hurt himself . I have no experience with torn muscles , but it is an old injury. Old enough to cause the hoof on the same leg to become flared from compensating. Now what would be the best way to approach this ? I want to use him for arc and some low level eventing (starting at e grade). He also has a healed bowed tendon , which is another story all together. My plan of attack was , to get some bowen ( which he started today with a fantastic girl) , slowly correct his feet so he is balanced , get the chiro out to make sure he is good elsewhere. Then bring him softly into work and focus on building some strength in his hindquarters. Is there also any kind of supplements that could help the muscle? .
