That's why I had the vet called out because I thought she was sore but he said she was fine is it possible that he didn't pick up on something. I plan on getting a chiro out this spring, for an alignment i'll have them look into that too though
You are on the right track then. Sounds like she just needs time and patience. If she quivers everytime you touch her she might just need some more desensitising.. just stand and run your hands all over her for a bit and see how she does. Just keep on rubbin when she gets cranky or fidgets and leave her alone when she stands and her expression changes or she relaxes. Some horses are just really sensitive, just give her some time and keep rubbin your hands all over her body. I am glad you are looking into a chiro, lots of people don't believe in it. Good for you and good luck!
