    Not always tragic!

    While many hind end issues can be catastrophic, in my practice I find so many lamenesses and problems are caused by tight muscles. The muscles that attach to the hock and stifle will not function when they are tight and in spasm and can make the horse look very bad. I go to many 3 day events. I see a lot of lame horses on Thursday, but by Friday, the ones who just needed to have some body work, are moving well.
