Riding A Horse With Heaves

  2008 Cherry Hill   Copyright Information

 

 

Hi Cherry,

I was woundering could you still ride a horse that has heaves?

Thanks, Haley

 

Hi Haley,

Horse Health Care by Cherry HillThat would depend on how bad the case of heaves is and how hard the horse is ridden.

A horse with mild heaves that is being properly managed might be able to be used lightly.

Cherry Hill's Horsekeeping Almanac

A horse with severe heaves, even with proper management, might not be able to be ridden at all.

Please confer with your veterinarian about this. But in the meantime, to read more about heaves, go here: Heaves.
