My horse has been diagnosed with arthritis in his c6&c7 vertebrae.His back legs seem to give way underneath him.He is an 8 yr old tb whom I bought of the racetrack 2 yrs ago.The vets have said that the only option is to inject his joint with steroids to help the inflammation.I dont know much about arthritis & I am scared that this is the end of his ridden career-any info or ideas would be a great help to me as advice is so conflicting & I dont know what to do next?
