PostHeaderIcon Nova’s Notebook – I Started Riding in Fall 2008

Nova got kicked in the knee while in the pasture. She came limping up to Jenny dragging her leg.  We got the vet out, xRays were taken and a splint was put on her leg. They couldn’t see anything, but didn’t want to take a chance.

Poor Nova had to stay in a stall in the hummid summer heat. Barb climbed up on the stall and mounted a fan so it would point down.  Nova laid in her stall quite a bit.

We took the splint off and couldn’t see anything.  Lameness test showed her to be limping.  The vet decided that nothing had been broken.  The diagnosis was that her synovial fluid had leaked out of her knee. We did two or three injections and she was deemed good enough to come home and be free in her pasture.

This put her training with Jenny at 6 month suspension. She was fully recovered in time for Jenny to ride her in the Celebration horse show.

I got Nova to ride after the 2008 Celebration and our riding adventures started!
