Tottie's story started at Deben Valley Equine

In July, Tottie was really lame (6/10 lame RF at walk). 

Nerve blocks at our clinic isolated the problem to be in the foot.  Radiographs were completely normal, so Tottie was referred for an MRI scan.

Tottie had special shoes fitted and pen rest for 4 months.

Great News

Tottie returned to Rossdales, Newmarket for a repeat MRI scan on 22nd October 2019.  The MRI image shows a full recovery which matched with a reduction in lameness.

I have been riding Tottie for 5 days.  Just walking in straight lines.  Day 1 was a little tense, I had to sit very quietly, but Saturday I hacked round the block and was grinning like a cheshire cat!
