His sore spot is about three inches from the cantle of my saddle, so I'm pretty sure its not the saddle. Also, I went on vacation for two weeks and he was the exact same amount of sore as he usually is. I can't actually tell if it affects him normally (I imagine it would), but he is sensitive to pressure (me running my fingers along his spine). We did find a slight curvature, so that is the likely culprit. While we try to fix it (with the chiro and "physical therapy" - ground poles, cavaletti, etc, to strengthen the rest of his back), I think the DMSO might help. I will def. Use gloves though! Lol. Cowgirl - that is a great idea with the Aloe. I never thought of it! Thanks again!

    No problem! Good Luck! It sounds like you are doing all the right things tho.
