Serious curb???
Hi
My horse recently developed a curb on his off hind. He is not lame, but seems stiff. How serious is a curb? Should I retire him? I do show jumping with him, and am worried he won't be able to take the strain. Also, the curb developed on the same leg that he had sesmoiditis - does this make it worse?

OOOOhhh - you better speak to a horse vet about this! I'm afraid I cannot be of much help.
