I've just bought a 13hh pony for restarting and schooling. Hoping to make a lovely pony club pony for
Someone! However I've brought him
Home, and when I started to do work with him trying to desensitise him as quite flinchy, I found he is really uncomftable with people around his back end, really just back legs and as soon as you touch behind his legs just under his bum he kicks out in panic, after about ten minutes of trying to desensitise him to me touching his legs I managed to touch all over. However at the top of the leg by the stifle... (that little bit of skin that's a bit flappy between stomach and back leg) is very very sensitive and when I touch that he goes mental, I tried desensitising him the same way with his back legs but really not happy. Was wondering if anyone had anything similar or whether he could be in pain there from
Something? It's the same on both sides but right side is slightly worse! Any advise would be amazing!!!!
