Not so much research.. more many years of being on this earth training horses, riding horses, farming, handling lots of animals and so forth.

IOW's I am old enough to have knocked around a bit. LOL

This is just the perfect thread for me, to add my question to. The "hunter's bump" - is that the same "bump" in the LS Joint Region that mares get, when they "dip" right before foaling, and settle down? - if so, in reality for those with experience handling mares after foaling - is it possible to "retrain" the back and abdomen musculator to lift that joint again, to minimize that "dip" where the loin meets the croup?

How "useable" under saddle will that horse be? Will it be possible to train that horse collection?

I wont claim to be an expert here as I have no experience of mares that have had one foal after another over a long period of time and there are always going to be exceptions
I have however bred foals from quite a lot of mares over the years - as many as 4 in a row from one mare - that have returned to riding work with no conformation issues and all into competition situations that demanded collection with no problems. Nothing was done to retrain the mare as far as bringing the back up was concerned. Thats usually something that will sort out in the time the mare is feeding the foal and then improve with gradual normal return to work
If there is actual damage done to the sacro iliac thats a different thing and would depend on how severe it is
