Horse Chiropractors in northern or central VA?

I haven't looked into it real well yet, and the vet is going to look at him next week when he does Rosie's surgery, but Rook seems to be tender in his back just before his hip bones. He only shows it when I'm currying or brushing him...and rarely when I run my hands down or fingers with pressure. Am I jumping to quick here? Could it just be a ticklish spot for him? He still stands really well for me to saddle and get on him...but after reading through some of the posts, I'm wondering if this could be some of the reason he acts up on me at times.

Thanks for any replies!!!!!

Unfortunately I can't advice anyone in VA (if you'd be in MD that would be a different story :) ), but look up Virginia Equestrian.com I'm sure they have some ads there about chiro.

Thanks KV!!!! I found one that is only about an hour away. If he doesn't travel out as far as I am, I can trailer Rook to him.

I REALLY REALLY APPRECIATE IT!!!!!!!!

Thanks Farmpony!!!

That's only about 50 miles from me. It would be no problem taking him over there.

I'm going to give them a call this evening. I'm thinking it would be a little cheaper on me to drive him out there because it is so far away. Would you by any chance know a round about figure of how much they charge before I call them?

I'm not sure. I pay a $75 farm call and I'm about 45 miles away.

Tat's not too bad. It'd probably be cheaper to trailer him there though...unless they're like Rappahannock Equine and charge as much (if not more) for the office visit as they do for the farm call.
