i know this may not sound serious but my friend has tried everything for her horse, she's had her teeth done, her saddle re-stuffed and also had a new tree for it, she's had the back specialist out to her, she's been checked over by the vet and nothing has seemed to work. Coco (the horse) is a 14 year old, belgiun warmblood. Her owner and I are struggling to ride her as she puts her ears back, swishes her tail, arches her back, throws her head in the air and sometimes holds her head to your foot as if there is pain. Obviously Coco cannot tell us if there is any mental or physical pain so we were thinking about getting a horse whisperer in to help, do you think that its worth it?
(She may not like working at home and we are going to try her down the indoor school near us and try hacking out on saturday)
Coco had an operation 6 months ago and had her left vocal cord removed but I cannot see how this is causing the problem.
I will keep you informed, but please give me advice or help in any possible way. We've tried everything, theres little left to do!
