I've only heard good things about having chiropractic work done on horses. Just make sure you find a good one :)

I don't mean to pick but if a horse tore ligaments, then it stands to reason why the chiro couldn't help, as they work on bone structure and allignment, not tissue.

If a person tore the ligaments in their knee, would they go and see a chiro?

Spirit Horse - I totally agree with the point you make however IME i have found it to work better the other way around. In saying that, I have friends that will ague until they are blue in the face that the way you suggested works better. I think that it really comes down to personal preference with this one

I have had one for Magic for a while now, and she has helped a lot. She can point out what is bothering him or if he is sore anywhere. It is expensive, but totally worth it


I <3 you Magic!

He knows when you're happy
He knows when you're comfortable
He knows when you're confident
And he always knows when you have carrots.

I have my chiro out every 90 days and he only charges $50. The first time I think was like $75 but after the first time it lowered. It really helped my Dressage horse. I can tell when she is needing work done again because when I ask for the canter she will jump into it and sometimes try to buck. Once he comes out again she does it perfectly again.

They work wonders!
