A lower hip can also be caused by a horse not properly using one of his h ind legs for whatever reason, and the muscle on the hip of that side is underdeveloped. I have a mare with this issue. Her hocks and stiffles were stiff, more so on her left side. We had a couple of chiro treatments, did lots of stretching, and got her on a powerful joint supplement. We also work her over trot poles regularly. It's been 4 months and I can definitely see improvement in her gaits and her hip. It's not all the way level yet, but it's getting there.

My husband's gelding has a pronounced dropped hip. His was caused by a hip injury as a yearling. We did a lot of chiro and massage on him, trot poles and other exercises, and his hip is better, but it will never be level.

Willow does not have one hip lower than the other rather she has the actual bump located at the pelvis region.
