Now next question...surgery or massage or what? Apparently it's not painful and in my mare's case it has changed within the last 5-6 months...what would be best? Somewhere in the articles it said supplementing magnesium helps. That is easy...finding a capable vet could be way harder..
My tb mare seems identical to yours- came to me pretty out of whack as well :/ also diagnosed with fibrotic myopathy- we do chiropractor, Rolfing (who focuses on her hamstrings) and I use back on track products (full blanket and saddle pad) with her. That combo really does the trick for her!

They're a bit pricey :/ over all though, since they can be used safely for long term AND on multiple horses they pay for themselves :) I just about choked on the $80 saddle pad and $250'blanket, but when you add up vet visits it seems like nothing, especially since you can use the stuff on ALL of your horses :) Smartpak has some great customer insight in their reviews too

You won't regret the investments!!! http://www.backontrackproducts.com/

I have the Therapeutic pad for Joker's fractured sacrum. It has reduced the inflammation bump in his rump area by 40%. He isn't in near as much discomfort from that injury as he could be, thanks to the pad. He really needs to see the chiropractor for this issue but she had a baby in December and isn't back to work yet.

I also have the Quick Wraps for Joker's front legs. I keep them on him about fours hours daily while he's in his stall (same time as the pad) and they have done a terrific job with his sesamoiditis and torn ligaments. The rest of the time he is in leg quilts and standing wraps.

Lastly, I have B.O.T.'s Hock Wraps for my 25 yo TWH with hock/ankle arthritis. They have worked so well on him that I have been able to cut his Hylarin/Boswelia in half and he goes out of his stall "swingin" pretty close to how his Walking Horse self did ten years ago. Before the Hock Wraps, he was stumping out of the stall until he could walk out of the stiffness.

I have never seen anything work like these products. They really live up to their claims. I have no regrets for all the money I've spent.

Soon as the horses stop costing so much extra money, I will buy the dog therapeutic blanket for my 11 yr old Dobe/Rott with the fractured pelvis (she had that when I rescued her 9 years ago). Arthritis is starting to catch up with her.

You summed it up so well!!! I also have three pads, one blanket, hock wraps, quick wraps, and head cap. They are incredible- and the head cap, which I just received, is AMAZING! Got a horse that was very right in the poll to relax like jello in about five minutes :) I think we could be reps for the company!

Ok... So the chiropractor just left and I just got home. Ginger does not have an injury involving her bones. It is most likely fibrotic myopathy. She has a tendon issue in her back left. Causing her to be short strided. He said she was out in almost every place he checked. Her sacrum was one of the few places that was just fine. He did pop her hips, poll, shoulder, cranium, jaw, etc. almost everything was out. But he said she should be fine to ride just don't make her do sliding stops or hard stops. He will be coming back out next month to re adjust her again! ;)

Yeah!!! Great news!
I've been watching my Snipper closely for the last two days, definitely also fibromyopathy. Very visible in walk, next to nothing in trot, and ever so slightly in canter. So we'll start working under saddle now, find a good chiropractors and supplement magnesium

Ooh. Your girl is going to be tender for a couple of days. So nice when an issue can be identified and addressed! I'm crossing my fingers for her!!

Yeah... I'm almost positive it is going to end up being fibrotic myopathy. Like 99% sure. It just has to be. But at least it's not something that is going to keep me from riding her. He actually told me she needs to be ridden 3-4 days of the week at least. 2days off max... Light riding to build her topline and muscles a little better. I have some topline exercises I'm going to be doing with her too
