I have a 12-year-old appendix QH gelding who is very stiff in his shoulder and his back. My vet suggested an equine chiropractor and I'm wondering if anyone could tell me about their experiences with them and whether or not they felt that chiropractors helped bring comfort to their horses and brought them to a point where they were rideable again? I actually bought this horse in late December at a very "reasonable price" (buyer beware) and didn't ride him much in the winter due to the weather here in Michigan. As spring rolled around I worked with him more and I began to recognize these problems with him so I'm guessing that they would be considered chronic issues. I have started him on Devil's Claw Plus by Uckele to help relieve his pain and I'm hoping that will get him on the right path but he needs more than that to get straightened out. I would appreciate your opinions.
