Question
hello sir, what quick treatment would you give for horses suffering from bowed tendons?

Answer
HI -- THERE IS NO QUICK TREATMENT FOR A BOWED TENDON.  REST AND DIFFERENT TREATMENTS WILL HELP THE TENDON HEAL WITH TIME.  A LOW BOWED TENDON IS THE BEST TO DEAL WITH AS IT HAS ALREADY BOWED TO THE BOTTOM AND SHOULD  SET UP QUICKER THEN A HIGH OR MIDDLE BOWED TENDON.. YOUR VET WILL PRESCRIBE THE TREATMENT YOU SHOULD USE FOR THIS PROBLEM.  THANKS ED HESS

Have trained thoroughbreds for 30 odd years. Have been a licensed trainer for that long of time. I continue to train my race horses and thoroughly enjoy every day.

Experience


Experience: Licensed trainer for over 30 yrs. Have had lots of winners in all different types of races - from bottom claimers to top quality stakes winners. My best money winner was Aristocratic Cross (multiple stakes winner). My best claiming horse was Navajo Family, winner of 12 races in one year. I still enjoy racing a modest stable of horses each year.
