I'm new to horse ownership so maybe I am freaking out,
I went to ride Hero two nights ago and his trot was off. Just short and choppy on the front end...now all the horses got into the clover patch and had a bit of a tummy upset but would this effect his riding??
Maybe he pulled something the night before?
Anyways I didnt get on him the past few nights just worked with his fear of wash stalls and flyspray...
I got him in and out of the wash stall twenty times, so I think I'm going to start hosing his legs off with cold water if this "offness" continues
As for the fly spray it took a long time..he'll run around in circles as soon as you spray him..hes a ottb as soon as I put that stud chain on he didnt budge - guess that's what it takes..
Any ways just wondering if they can have off days what can cause it?
His legs are fine, stretched, not hot or swollen.
