I put him on the lunge line on Saturday (wrapping his front legs in polos), and he was pretty uncomfortable trotting. His stifles/hind end look really stiff. Hopefully it is just from loss of conditioning, but I'll discuss with the vet if there are any other issues we need to check, and will try to stay away from circles at least initially. Then on Sunday I rode for about 12 minutes, with a few gentle inclines for him to walk up. We'll start gradually working back up.
