Question Does my horse need chiropractic work done?

So, my mare has been acting different lately.
She has been stiff flexing to the left and is bad with her left hind leg when I pick it up and she has been dragging her toes.
The reason I thought she might need chiropractic work is, she is stalled, she has reared up and went over on her back within the last 4 months and she reared up once when I was on her back.

I was planning to take her to the chiropractor in January anyway because I wanted to make sure she was good before I started doing drill team.

So I was wondering is she just lazy or is her back out of whack?

She probably does. My paint was doing the samethng. He had seven ribs out of line for a year. After the chiropractor put them back in line He lefts his hind leg again an looks like a new horse. Only coast me 55.00 for the chiropractor . Paid the vet. Fifthteen times more an they still wasn't sure what was wrong. You can check on the web an they show you how to check for back pain.
