My horse Chester "The Bug" has ERU. I ride barrels and poles in
rodeos. He was unable to compete while he was in training to learn
how to run with his new mask. I have been working with him since
September of 2011 and we have clicked finally. At my last rodeo we
ran 18 seconds on barrels. Not the best of time, but getting better.
This is a picture of Chester "The Bug" with his mask on running
barrels. We get laughs and plenty of looks, but I don't care. When
they announce his name we have changed it to a nick name "The Bug".
You guys are really moving! It goes to show
you that hard work and dedication do pay off. You and
Chester look terrific out there, keep up the great work!
Thank you for sharing with us all, we LOVE the action shot!
We have had issues with my
daughters quarter horse for the last 10 years. We have have been
dealing with eye issues, rearing, and gate. He is one of my
daughters rodeo horses. We would not have any trouble with him
riding in night rodeos, but the daytime was a major issue. Some
arenas we would just not take him because we knew that there would
be a fight and head shaking.
We decided to take him to
our local trainer who also works at a equine vets office. The
trainer had him looked at and we would told he had ERU. She
medicated him, but it was taking long to heal. This was a bad
inflammation. The trainer recommended the "Guardian Mask".
Within three days his eye
was healing faster and his attitude changed. He wears it all the
time except when in the stall. I am attaching a photo of him
learning to work with the mask on. Just knowing the problem and
being able to fix has helped my daughter and her horse.
This is wonderful
news and we really appreciate your sharing! We would
really appreciate if you could thank your trainer for us too!
We're so happy that your daughter is now able to enjoy her horse
again like it should be!
