Toby, whose real name is, To Be Sure, was doing eventing and jumping when he went unsound.

He wasn’t actually lame but not bodily good enough to carry on.

After a lot of tests and examinations the vets diagnosed Navicular which meant an end to his riding career.

The owners contacted me again and asked me to take him as they had no purpose for him. Toby has come on really well. We have loads of fun playing and being with his girl-friend Inca who he adores.

We have carried out a lot of body massage and given homeopathic remedies and now he is sound so enjoys his playing much more. Like all the others we do not ride him, he is a wonderful therapy horse,
