Back Issue With My Arabian
Hello! So his issue with his back is that his back will be "out" or you could say it will come out of place. When his back is out he can't be ridden because of the pain it causes. We take him to a vet that does chiropractic work for him and he will pop his back into place again. After that he is fine can be ridden after about 24 hours if it wasn't out to bad if it was out really bad somewhere between that and a week at most. His back will go out if he plays and runs around in his pasture a lot or to hard, if I don't ride him a lot, or before when he has fallen down it's a given his back will be out. When I work him regularly he doesn't go out as bad but every once in a blue moon he will go out slightly. When he is out he doesn't bend at all just turns his head and he wants to go really fast and throw you off. I love what the vet that works on his back does for Laddy and Laddy loves going to see him too. So does this type of back ailment sound familiar to you and your horse?
