There is a new horse at our barn he is a stout little 15h 13yr old QH gelding. He has been used for roping and reining. I saw her riding him and I noticed that in the back his fetlocks touch the ground when he goes faster then a walk, and the front are almost touching. She plans on using him as a western gaming horse (speed events like barrels and poles) is this safe for him? How can dropped fetlocks be good for a horse? I asked his new owner (she is ten years old) and she said it was no big deal then again she doesnt even know the name of the bit she uses or why she uses a tie down! Sorry if im ranting a little but this girl is going to ruin this horse because she has no idea what she is doing and doesn't care whatsoever! If he already has these issues what others could develope because of I? I really hope this isnt a problem becasue he is a sweet horse who has ended up in the hands of someone inexperienced.
