My horse is losing an eye tomorrow - please share your experiences with me!

Hi, unfortunately my pony Zola is having her eye removed tomorrow due to an aggressive case os squamous cell carcinoma. I'm absolutely gutted but I knows that its the only way she can begin to go into remission. Is there anyone who can share experiences involving on eyed horses? I am told they adapt very well, and she's got such a good nature I am sure she will. But will it effect her in the show ring? Some people have told me judges cannot discriminate but no one really knows for sure. Will she be able to jump as well as she does now? And will she enjoy being ridden or will it scare her? I'm so uncertain of what is to come so anyone with any experience/advice to share I will be so grateful! Thank you for reading this!

R.I.P my beautiful Zola, you will be missed every day <3

OH Andrea I'm so sorry to hear your sad news, you had to make a brave decision and although it can't have been easy you did the right thing for Zola, you put her first without thinking of yourself. Zola will always be with you in your heart, nobody can take away all of your fond memories of her. Sending you big hugs, thinking of you, Lyn XX

So sorry to hear this sad news. You did the best you could for her and it must have been a heartbreaking decision to make.

My thoughts are with you, and you will always have those wonderful memories of her. 

Best wishes, Jen xx
