Meet the lovely Hummer who’s a 22 year old Belgian Draft.
His owner Gemma has had Hummer for 10 years and it’s a warming story how they met.
I went to try another horse and saw this very overweight sad looking horse in the field. The lady who owned him hadn’t ridden or done anything with him for years. I took my time but we worked together and eventually he trusted me. We did do a few little shows to get him used to people and other horses but now we are happy hackers.
Hummer developed swollen hind legs, and after a few days Gemma was told his stifles where fusing and he had a lot of arthritic change.
I was told he wouldn’t be able to ride and because of his size pain killers etc. may not be able to support him, and we would have to say goodbye. We started on 6 Bute a day along with other meds and herbs. I walked him around the field in hand, he wasn’t so lame but looked sad. I read about all alternative medicines and tried quite a few. Then we tried the magnetic bands. Life changer!
Within a few weeks Hummer was trotting around the field and looked much happier.
‘We started to reduce his bute to see what would happen. He just got better and better. After 2 years of wearing the bands on all four legs, we don’t feed bute and we are happy hackers. If I take them off for long periods, you can see the change in him. Best things I’ve ever bought!‘
