Let's take a look at a success story for one of our career therapy horses! 

 

Johnny Bones came to Inspiration Stables after being a career trail horse.  He started off very well in the program, but after his first summer season, he was consistently showing signs of lameness.  We did everything we could to identify the issue by assessing for abscess, having body work done to relieve muscle tension, targeted exercising to engage his hind and take pressure off his front end, and more, but nothing was working as a long-term solution.  After consultation with our vet, we identified that Johnny Bones suffers from navicular disease.  We now have him in wedged shoes and pads to take the pressure off his navicular bone and routinely administer OsPhos to help stop or reverse the effects on the navicular bone.  Johnny Bones now happily walks, trots, and canters around the arena.
