Hi Forumites,

Our 3yo filly has been diagnosed with dorsal displacement of the soft palate. Our trainer on the advice of his veterinary surgeon (Of course) has recommended a surgical procedure called a tie forward.

Has anyone had any experience of the condition or results of the surgery.

Thanking all in anticipation

Hi Galifryan
Noticed your post whilst responding to Cityboy and his problem.
How did you go?
My experience with this was not great...........would much prefer a roarer! Did try the Cornell collar, with no success either.
Another condition with variables; if chronic from the onset forget it. Sometimes it only displaces if the horse isn't fit enough. Lesson...make sure he's fit before you put him under pressure.  Other times its intermittent, which can drive you crazy! is the horse any good in the first place other wise your just filling the vets pocketsWink
Not unless the procedure has improved, but i dont think ops for this condition are in your favour.
Maybe another case for tongue ties and nose bands.

Hi Isaac,

Thanks for the reply. Well we went ahead and had the surgery. We will know in a few months as she has just resumed work. Was reluctant to have the procedure but the trainer on vets advice was keen. Trainer was reluctant to try a Cornell Collar. We had already tried the tongue tie. Suppose we should have considered a change of trainer!

She has shown some promise and run 2 placings in 3YO maidens
